12-OCFS-ADM-03: New Requirement Regarding Educational Stability of Foster Children
The purpose of this Administrative Directive (ADM) is to advise local departments of social services (LDSS) and voluntary authorized agencies of an important new provision of federal law, the Child and Family Services Improvement and Innovation Act (P.L.112-34), which went into effect on October 1, 2011. This legislation revises the educational stability provisions found in Section 475 (1) (G) of the Social Security Act, by applying them both when a child is first placed in foster care and at any subsequent move that occurs during the time the child remains in foster care.
