Since the inception of KECSAC in 1992, there have been dramatic increases in both services and resources available for the education of state agency children, while the number of children served has grown from 1,000 to 3,000.
The establishment of a collaborative organization (KECSAC) managed by a neutral university partner (Eastern Kentucky University) served as a catalyst that brought various state and local agencies to the table focusing on the education of these children.
Prior to KECSAC, state agency children had a very low profile and seldom were a high priority.
Local school districts and communities involved in the education of youths in out-of-home placements have been a key to KECSAC's achievements.
The Commonwealth, through KECSAC, has invested significant resources and efforts in collecting and disseminating information regarding state agency children and their educational needs.
