The California School Age Families Education (Cal-SAFE) Program became operational through the California Department of Education in July 2000, and was designed to increase the availability of support services necessary for enrolled expectant or parenting students to improve academic achievement and parenting skills, and to provide a quality child care and development program for their children. The Cal-SAFE Program provided the opportunity for local educational agencies throughout California to access sufficient resources to support a seamless, cost-effective service delivery system from point of entry into the Program until graduation. It was the intent of the Legislature that school districts and county offices of education implementing the Cal-SAFE Program connect with existing program strategies, and build upon existing local collaboratives to provide a unified integrated system of services to children, youth, and families. For information about Cal-SAFE programs in your area, contact your local school district.
