Evaluator Manual

The Evaluator Manual provides a self-contained resource for the application and enforcement of laws, policies and procedures. Utilizing one reference source ensures statewide consistency in the administration of the licensing program. The Evaluator Manual is also used to train new employees of the Community Care Licensing Division's Regional Offices and the county offices that contract with the State to administer the Family Child Care Home and the Foster Family Home programs. The term "Evaluator" is used throughout the manual and includes both State and county licensing workers. State licensing evaluators are referred to as Licensing Program Analysts.
