- The juvenile court makes a determination regarding the future status of the child by the 12th month of placement for all. To provide reasonable assurance that this has occurred, permanency planning hearings are held for any child in placement by the 12th month of original placement date and annually thereafter. See Appendix A for the definition of “Original Placement Date.”
- The social worker must notify the child's foster parent(s) or kinship caregiver(s) of the date and location of permanency planning hearings pertaining to the child.
