Educational Placement

Very often, group home residents remain at their group home during the school day while an appropriate educational placement is determined. Sometimes these residents are not placed in schools for extended periods of time. Such practices impose a considerable burden on the staffing needs of a group home. More importantly, the residents do not receive optimal educational support.


Understanding how to assist in the proper placement of a resident in an appropriate school is one of the benefits that Koba offers through MFP. Often, assisting in educational placement merely requires contacting a child advocate (or offering support in having an advocate appointed), who can effectively utilize available laws to ensure that the services are provided. The MFP program takes steps to find appropriate private placement for its residents.
