Supplemental Education Transition Planning (SETuP) Program
The purpose of the SETuP Program is to assist foster youth and unaccompanied homeless youth in successfully making the transition from high school to postsecondary enrollment, career, or service.
The Washington Student Achievement Council contracts with six non-governmental organizations to provide SETuP services to students, with the goal of improving high school graduation rates and postsecondary plan initiation by two percent each year over five school-year periods. Services may include:
- Case management to complete developmental tasks that increase high school and postsecondary success.
- Facilitation of youth access to and participation in appropriate school and local resources that may assist in educational access and success.
- Collaboration with the student, caregivers, schools, and social workers to support youth progress in the educational system.
Students looking for more information about SETuP and other resources for foster youth are encouraged to visit our partners at independence.wa.gov.
A student is eligible for SETuP services if they are:
- In foster care in Washington State or experiencing unaccompanied homelessness.
- Between the ages of 13-21.
- Enrolled in high school or a GED program.
