WHEN TO USE IT

 

Complete this form in NJ SPIRIT.  This letter is used by the assigned Worker and Supervisor to inform the parent(s) of a child(ren) placed in a resource family home (including placement with a relative or kin,)  of the child's in school placement, based on N.J.S.A. 30:4C-26b, enacted September 9, 2010.  The letter notifies the parent(s) of the decision to immediately enroll his or her child(ren) in the resource family home school district.

 

Manual policy states that when placing a child in resource family care, CP&P makes diligent efforts to allow the child to continue to attend his or her pre-placement school, unless remaining in the pre-placement school is not in the child's best interest and would present significant safety concerns or a significant and immediate detriment to the child. See CP&P-IV-B-8-100.

 

When the Worker and Supervisor determine that a credible threat to the child's safety exists, the location of the child's school is not disclosed to the parent(s).
