P 2763 Temporary Alternative Placement Agreements

If a parent/guardian is temporarily unable to provide care or support for their child and if the child is not in imminent danger of death; serious bodily injury or being sexually abused; an adult relative and the parent/guardian of the child may enter into a Temporary Alternative Placement Agreement ("Agreement") with Missouri's Children's Division.

The Agreement provides for a placement with an adult relative for a period of ninety (90) days. The adult relative shall make the day-to-day decisions for the child including educational, medical decisions, as well as enrollment in school for the term of the Agreement.

The adult caregiver (relative) is required to notify the District of the Agreement and is required to provide the District with a copy of the Agreement.

This provision will become effective only when the Children's Division has prepared and disseminated Rules and Regulations governing such Agreements.
