FKCE Stands For Care

The Woodland Community College Foster and Kinship Care Education (FKCE) program serves Yolo County foster parents, kinship/relative care providers, and individuals interested in becoming foster parents or in adopting a child.

We provide free classes and workshops to individuals who are:

  • Parenting a child placed in out-of-home care and you want to improve your parenting skills
  • Taking care of a relative's child
  • Need to complete the State mandated foster care education requirements
  • Interested in being a foster or adoptive parent

The mission of Woodland Community College Foster and Kinship Care Education (FKCE) is to provide quality education and training for care providers of children and youth in out-of-home care so that these providers can meet the child's educational, emotional, behavioral and developmental needs. There are 523,000 reasons to provide education and support to families caring for children placed outside their birth families. This is the number of youth in the United States currently living in foster care because their own family is in crisis and cannot provide for their day-to-day needs.

Placement Passport

babyThe Placement Passport is a compilation or summary of the health and education records of a child placed into foster care, as stated in California’s Welfare and Institution Code (Section 16060, 358.1).  All foster parents are to maintain these records on behalf of the child and specifically include the names and addresses of the child’s educational providers, grade level performance, school records, immunization and allergy records, known medical problems, current medications, past health problems and hospitalizations, a record of relevant mental health history, known mental health condition and medications, photos, school and art work, and any other relevant information concerning the child.

The Placement Passport typically is given to you at the time a child is placed into your home.  If not please request a Placement Passport from your social worker or from a Foster & Kinship Care Education training team member.  Individual Passport forms can be found by downloading them from the links below.   Foster parents are responsible for obtaining and maintaining accurate and thorough information from physicians and educators for the child’s Passport during the time the child is in their care.
