DCF School of Origin Transportation (SOOT)

Children in foster care have the right to remain in their school of origin when placed in foster care or moved to a new placement. Some students in foster care will need transportation to remain in their schools of origin. On June 1, 2019 the Department of Children and Families contracted Advanced Behavioral Health, Inc. (ABH) to establish and operate an administrative service program for the coordination and dispatch of DCF credentialed transportation for DCF clients receiving services under the School of Origin (SOO) Transportation program.
