AI - Travel and Overnight Stays Involving Children in Foster Care

Wednesday, September 26, 2018

This administrative issuance outlines the circumstances in which kinship and traditional foster parents, and contractually designated congregate care staff (hereinafter, “resource providers”) are empowered through application of the Reasonable and Prudent Parent Standard (RPP) to allow children to participate in overnight stays or travel with or without the resource provider. These activities may include, but are not limited to: participation in sports, social functions, recreational activities, cultural events, or other opportunities that foster a sense of normalcy for children in the foster care system.
