Children are, first and foremost, protected from abuse and neglect
Reviewers should list reports by date, per child, and per allegation. If the same child had multiple allegations that resulted in separate dispositions, each allegation should be indicated in a separate row in the table so that the disposition can be noted for each allegation. If multiple allegations received the same disposition, all allegations may be indicated in the same row. When tallying the number of reports in responding to questions A, B, and C, reviewers should not count each allegation or child as a separate report, but rather consider the date of the report as a distinct report made to the agency.
No, because the TPR occurred prior to the PUR and the target child was in his own individual case during the entire PUR.
The TPR for the target child in foster care during the PUR does not change the fact that the siblings are still part of the family's case; therefore, information and circumstances related to them should be considered in rating Items 1 and 3.
The "requirements" noted in 1B refer to any requirements, beyond time frames, that are noted in state policies or statutes related to initial face-to-face contact with the children in accepted maltreatment reports.
