Current through Bulletin 2022-07, April 1, 2022
The following state regulations pages link to this page.
State regulations are updated quarterly; we currently have two versions available. Below is a comparison between our most recent version and the prior quarterly release. More comparison features will be added as we have more versions to compare.
(1) During the course of a CPS investigation involving allegations of conduct by a juvenile that is identified as severe or chronic as those terms are defined in Sections 62A-4a-101 and 62A-4a-1002, the CPS caseworker shall complete a significant risk assessment to determine whether a juvenile is a significant risk to other children or the community.
(2) To conduct this assessment the CPS caseworker shall use the assessment tool developed by Child and Family Services for the purpose of determining risk presented by the minor. The tool used will be the most current version of the significant risk assessment.
(3) The assessment shall be based upon the facts of the case that are present during the CPS investigation.
(4) The assessment process identified in Section R512-203-3 is not for determining whether the allegation under investigation is supported or unsupported.
(5) The juvenile's age alone is not a reason for determining whether the juvenile presents a significant risk.
(6) The completed significant risk assessment instrument for each minor assessed shall be made a part of the CPS record and shall be classified as Private pursuant to the Government Records Management and Access Act (GRAMA).
