Regarding (35) “Candidate for foster care” and (36)"Candidate for prevention services" "...serious risk of removal (entering or re-entering foster care)"; I fear this language is confusing given the understanding of Safety and Risk in Ohio. Given that we only consider removal for an active safety threat connecting risk level to removal could complicate decision making. If a low risk case, one that would have been shut down at intake prior to prevention, now qualifies for services could the definition be something like "...without intervention risk level indicates the likely need for further system penetration at a later date.
