Provides that the court may approve the placement of a minor in an out of state residential treatment center upon application by the Department of Children and Family Services when the court determines that the placement of the minor in an out-of-state residential treatment center is in the best interest and is the least restrictive, most family-like setting for the minor. Provides that the Department's application shall include an explanation of what in State resources, if any, the Department considered for the minor and why the minor cannot be placed in a residential treatment center or other placement in this State, an explanation as to how the out-of-state residential treatment center will impact the minor's relationships with family and other individuals important to the minor and what steps the Department will take to preserve those relationships, an explanation as to how the Department will ensure the safety and well-being of the minor in the out-of-state residential treatment center and an explanation as to why it is in the minor's best interest to be placed in the out-of-state residential treatment center, including a description of the minor's treatment needs and how those needs will be met in the proposed placement. Provides that this provision does not apply to an out-of-state placement of a minor in a family foster home, relative foster home, a home of a parent, or a dormitory or independent living setting of a minor attending a post-secondary educational institution. Defines "residential treatment center". Effective immediately.
