Current through Bulletin 2022-07, April 1, 2022

(1) During a CPS investigation involving allegations of conduct by a minor that are 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 minor is a significant risk to others.
(2) To conduct this assessment, the CPS caseworker shall use the assessment tool developed by Child and Family Services to determine risk presented by the minor. The tool used shall be the most current version of the significant risk assessment.
(3) The CPS caseworker shall base the assessment on the facts of the case that are present during the CPS investigation.
(4) The assessment process is not for determining whether the allegation under investigation is supported or unsupported.
(5) The minor's age alone is not a reason for determining whether the minor 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 GRAMA.
