SB 12 (Beall) would require the development of an automated system to verify a student’s status as a foster child, to aid the processing of Pell Grant applications; and would double the number of community college districts receiving funds to expand postsecondary education for foster youth, from 10 to 20. It would also require that case plans for foster youth of 16 or older specify the person who is to assist the child with applying for college financial aid.
