94 ADM-8: Dissemination of Family Service Plans and Certain Assessment Information (Chapter 725 of the Laws of 1992)

I. Purpose
The purpose of this directive is to provide policy implications and
guidance to social service districts and voluntary child caring agencies
which serve foster children and their families regarding Chapter 725 of the
Laws of 1992. This directive also advises districts and agencies of the
promulgation of regulations relative to Chapter 725 of the Laws of 1992.
Chapter 725 of the Laws of 1992, which became effective on July 31, 1992,
amended Sections 409-e and 409-f of the Social Services Law (SSL).
Primarily these amendments:

 ° required that in foster care cases specified information be
   documented in the case assessment; and that specified assessment
   and service plan information be given to the parent or guardian
   of a child entering foster care, to the counsel for the parent
   or guardian and to the child's law guardian.

Chapter 725 of the Laws of 1992 required this Department to issue
regulations in order to implement certain provisions in the statute. Those
regulations, a copy of which are set forth in Attachment B of this
directive, became effective December 15, 1993. They require social services
districts and voluntary child care agencies to share certain statutorily
required case record information with specified parties.
