John Pezold's thoughts

This bill authorizes a kinship caregiver to give legal consent for educational services, medical services relating to academic enrollment, and curricular and extracurricular participation. The bill provides the actual language for an Affidavit and protects any person acting in good faith on executing a kinship caregiver's affidavit to be free of civil liability, criminal prosecution, or professional disciplinary procedure.
