A new Pennsylvania law requires that county and private children and youth social service agencies notify foster care or kinship care families of scheduled meetings regarding child placement. It encourages the families’ active participation in the plan to place a child permanently in an adoptive home. The bill also requires such agencies to respond openly, completely and promptly when contacted by the foster family regarding the care of the child. And, it requires that certain medical, behavioral and educational information be shared with the foster family. Source. Governor.state.pa.us/governor.
