Module One: Lesson Three

Record Organization

graphic of file cabinetThe record for each Early Steps enrolled child will contain standard sections and these sections will be in the order specified in Content and Sequence of Child Records. This document lists the standard sections and order required for all child records, regardless of location. However, the record may be divided into sub-sections and additional sections may be included at the discretion of the Local Early Steps.

Program Transfer
If an Early Steps eligible infant is transferred to another Local Early Steps, the service coordinator must ensure that a copy of the child's record is transferred to the receiving Local Early Steps within five (5) working days of the child's move.

Program Discharge
Upon the discharge of a child from a Local Early Steps, the service coordinator will close the case record within ten (10) working days of program discharge.

Closed Case Records
Closed case records must be maintained by the Local Early Steps and its service providers for a minimum of five (5) years from the date of closure.
