Permanency Plan Tool Now on DPI Website

Recent statutory changes allow schools to provide input in permanency plan hearings and reviews for students in out-of-home care (such as foster care, etc.). DPI created some resources to help school staff understand the process and facilitate school input.
 
Go to: https://dpi.wi.gov/foster-care/child-welfare-and-school-collaboration and scroll down to the section on “School Input for Permanency Plan Hearings and Reviews” to access a fillable form that can be used by school representatives to determine what information, if any, may be relevant for the school to present to a judge or administrative review panel regarding a student in out-of-home care.
