Abstract

This report was prepared for the Iowa General Assembly according to the requirements of Senate File 2304. This bill created the new Code of Iowa section 237C, Children’s Residential Facilities. Senate File 2304 directed the Department of Human Services (DHS) to consult with the Departments of Education, Inspections and Appeals, Public Health, the state Fire Marshal, and other agencies as determined by the DHS to establish certification standards for Children’s Residential Facilities in accordance with this section. The DHS and the Department Of Education are also each required to submit a report to the General Assembly concerning their progress in adopting rules as appropriate under Code of Iowa sections 237C.4 and 282.34. The state board of education is required to adopt rules governing educational programs and education services provided by Children’s Residential Facilities pursuant to Code of Iowa section 282.34. On December 28, 2016, the proposed administrative rules and certification standards were sent to the ARC for notice publication in the Administrative Bulletin.
