Legal Authority/Introduction

LEGAL AUTHORITY:

  • N/A

Procedure

The SSW: 

  1. Consults with the family’s team and keeps the family informed regarding placement options;
  2. Determines whether the child’s level of care assignment is accurate based on the child’s current situation, and (if necessary) requests a redetermination after receiving regional approval to initiate a change in placement;
  3. Notifies the Regional Placement Coordinator (RPC) of the need for a new placement and forwards a revised level of care packet.

Practice Guidance

  • Transferring a child between programs, facilities or foster homes is considered a placement move.  If a child's placement changes at any point, the SSW should always notify RPC to request a new placement.
