|(a) Except as provided in subsections (b) and (c) of
this section, a child-care administrator can be an administrator for
two residential child-care operations, including a child-placing agency,
(1) Both operations are in good standing with Licensing;
(2) The size and scope of the operations are manageable
by one person, which is clarified in the written professional staffing
(3) The child-placing agency, if applicable, is not
managing more than 25 foster homes;
(4) The person also holds a valid full Child-Placing
Agency Administrator License, if the second operation is a child-placing
(5) The general residential operations are contiguous.
A child-placing agency does not have to be contiguous.
(b) An operation that provides emergency care services
must designate an employee in the staffing plan that is solely responsible
for administering those services. This employee must have the experience
and background to be able to perform the child-care administrator
responsibilities. See §748.535 of this title (relating to What
responsibilities must the child-care administrator have?). A designated

is not required if the emergency care services program has a capacity
of not more than 30 children.

administrator's license may only serve as a licensed administrator
at one residential child-care operation.
