Foster care plan. Eliminates the requirement that a foster care plan for a child placed out of his home be filed by a public agency, other than a local board of social services, designated by a community policy and management team. Currently, such agencies must file a foster care plan when placing a child through an agreement with the child's parents or guardians where legal custody remains with the parents or guardians.
