The Potosi R-3 School District recognizes that students in foster care face unusual educational challenges. We work diligently to provide foster care students with educational stability and remove barriers to and provide opportunities for, academic excellence for foster care students. In order to achieve this purpose, we will work collaboratively with the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) and the Children’s Division (CD) of the Missouri Department of Social Services.
The district has designated Social Worker, Mrs. Marty Portell, as the Foster Care Point of Contact. If you have any questions regarding services for students in foster care, please contact Mrs. Portell:
