Reasonable and Prudent Parent Standard Training

Presented by the Wyoming Department of Family Services and the Wyoming Attorney General's Office. 

Debra Hibbard, Kristie Collins, Briana Montoya, Sara Serelson and Dana Ward with the Wyoming Department of Family Services and Wendy Ross, J.D., with the Wyoming Attorney General's Office will provide an overview of the Reasonable and Prudent Parent Standard. This presentation will provide an overview of the standard and discuss updates to Wyoming Department of Family Services policy.  In 2014, Congress passed the “Prevent Sex Trafficking and Strengthening Families” Act, H.R. 4980. This law established prudent parent standards throughout the United States. The federal legislation requires caregivers use a “reasonable and prudent parent standard” when determining whether to allow a child in foster care to participate in extracurricular, enrichment, cultural, and social activities. Additionally, a “caregiver” must be appointed to apply the reasonable and prudent standard for children who reside in congregate or institutional care. Join us to learn more about how Wyoming has implemented the standards.
