Notifications Field Guide
A new field guide from the State of Alaska Health and Social Services, Office of Children's Services (OCS), outlines the processes and activities required for notifications of an intent to change placement or a change of placement of children in foster care. The processes are intended to ensure that child welfare staff deliver timely and accurate notifications to legal parties involved in child welfare cases.
The 17-page guide includes a visual process map—with detailed steps—and activity sheets. Key definitions and frequently asked questions are also presented.
Field Guide: A Visual Process Guide for Noticing: Intent to Change Placement and Change of Placement, by Christy Lawton, is available on the OCS website:
