Handbook Revision, July 1, 2016
This revision of the Statewide Intake Policy and Procedures Handbook was published on July 1, 2016. Summaries of new or revised items are provided below.
Update to section 4490 to clarify that the AP does not have to be named, just enough information gathered to identify him or her. Spell out criteria in which SWI will accept a report. See:
4490 Reports Involving Schools
4491 Reports of Abuse or Neglect That Involve Home Schooling
4492 Reports of Abuse or Neglect That Involve Boarding Schools
4493 Reports Involving School Personnel
4493.1 Intake Criteria
4493.11 Abuse and Neglect Allegations
4493.12 Alleged Perpetrator
4493.13 Alleged Victim
4493.14 Location Where Abuse or Neglect Occurred
4493.15 Time of Incident
4493.21 School Personnel as Alleged Perpetrators (APs)
4493.22 Parents as Alleged Perpetrators (APs)
The content of section 5000 is being revised in the following ways:
• Addition of definitions for allegations.
• Removal of requirement for SWI staff to consider exemption criteria for DCL operations, as this may only be determined by CCL staff. All information regarding child-care operations must be sent to CCL for review, with the exception of reports involving child care provided in a caregiver’s home, foreign exchange/foster programs, juvenile detention/correctional facility, treatment facility for chemically dependent youth, and boarding schools.
• Addition that a DFPS employee can be an AP of abuse, neglect, or exploitation of a child in an RCCL placement if that child is in CPS conservatorship. This includes staff from any DFPS program and would be an intake to RCCL.
• Addition that a home health nurse for a child in care cannot be an AP. Assess for NSUP on foster/caregivers, and an APS Provider Investigations intake.
• Addition that intakes/I&Rs for RCL may be taken regardless of whether an RCL operation is active or inactive.
• Addition of how to handle reports regarding sex offenders in foster homes.
• Update to how to handle reports involving victims 18 years old or older.
