Description of Subjects/Issues Section 7.000.2 (12 CCR 2509-1), adds definitions for “conviction” and “pattern of misdemeanor” that will provide a common and consistent understanding of the terms. Currently these definitions exist in a different section of rule and are being relocated to definitions for consistency. Children, youth, kinship caregivers, foster care and kinship foster care providers, county departments of human or social services, CPAs, community providers, and other constituents will benefit from definitions being located in a centralized location. County departments of human or social services and CPAs may bear a minimal burden to notify staff and community partners of the location change. Section 7.304 (12 CCR 2509-4), revises and adds rules to clarify a number of pertinent issues involving living arrangements with kin including, legal custody status when a child/youth is placed in a non-certified kinship home (county involved vs. family arrangement); removal requirements; and consistent data entry when a child or youth is residing with kin. The rule establishes a practice framework outlining the possible options when placing with kinship caregivers.
