Rule Reminder: Residential Care Administrators Conduct

As provided in 26 Texas Administrative Code §748.535 and §749.635, the administrator of a general residential operation or child-placing agency has a crucial role in ensuring that the operation meets regulatory requirements, which include allowing HHSC Child Care Regulation (CCR) staff to conduct inspections and investigations.

Administrators must meet requirements related to administrator licensure that are in Chapter 43 of the Texas Human Resources Code and 26 Texas Administrative Code, Chapter 745, Subchapter N. Accordingly, CCR would like to remind residential child-care operations and administrators of the following rule that became effective on Oct. 19, 2023:

Texas Administrative Code, Title 26, Part 1, Chapter 745, Subchapter N, Division 1, Rule §745.8929 specifies conduct requirements for licensed administrators, or persons applying to become a licensed administrator, and prohibited actions.

This includes not interfering with CCR’s ability to conduct agency business.

CCR appreciates the important work that residential child-care operations and licensed administrators provide.
