A Kentucky minor (child) power of attorney may be used by the parent or legal guardian of a child to give another adult (attorney-in-fact) temporary authority to handle parental decisions for the child. The attorney-in-fact will be given certain parental rights and authorities that the parent or legal guardian has including school-related decision-making and consenting to any medical treatment. “Medical Treatment” does not include HIV/AIDS testing and controlled substance testing.
Once this power of attorney is executed, the child’s school district has the authority to review and audit the residency of the child. This power of attorney will remain in effect until otherwise revoked in writing by the parent or legal guardian of the child.
