This article is meant to provide workers with an overview of tracking adoption cases in extendedReach. If you have a question not addressed here, you can contact support at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Tracking an Adoption Case
When adding a new case you can specific if you would like to track as an Adoption Case and/or if it is a Straight Adoption.
In the General Tab, check the box next to “Track Adoption Case”.
extendedReach will automatically open another check-box option called “Straight Adoption”. Check this box if this case is not placed in foster care at your agency, and only adoption services will be offered. For straight adoption cases, no foster care worker at your agency will be assigned and no traditional foster care placement will be done. You will be required to specify what agency has or is providing foster care services for the child.
Straight adoption cases are not included in Days Care Calculations. A Matched Family and Current Location will be identified, but there will not be a “Placement” as in Foster Care.
