What steps must the department take when a child whose case management responsibility remains with the department is placed in a home certified by a CPA?
(1) The DCFS social worker follows regionally designated procedures for accessing services and sharing responsibility for utilizing child placing agency foster homes.
(2) The CPA and the DCFS social worker must sign a DSHS Private Child Placing Agency Agreement/Child in Foster Care, DSHS 15-190(X). The agreement designates which agency is responsible for case management services, support activities, and specific parts of the service plan while the child is placed in the CPA foster home. The agency representative and the department social worker must review and revise the agreement by mutual agreement at the request of either party.
(3) The CPA must provide the assigned DCFS social worker with quarterly progress reports for each child placed in homes certified by the CPA.
