50 shall have the primary responsibility to implement the purpose of this chap-
51 ter. To this end, the department is empowered and shall have the duty to do
52 all things reasonably necessary to carry out the purpose of this chapter,
53 including, but not limited to, the following:
1 (1) The department shall administer treatment programs for the protection
2 and care of neglected, abused and abandoned children, and in so doing may
3 place in foster care, shelter care, or other diagnostic, treatment, or care
4 centers or facilities, children of whom it has been given custody. The depart-
5 ment is to be governed by the standards found in chapter 12, title 39, Idaho
7 (2) On December 1, the department shall make an annual statistical report
8 to the governor covering the preceding fiscal year showing the number and sta-
9 tus of persons in its custody and including such other data as will provide
10 sufficient facts for sound planning in the conservation of children and youth.
11 All officials and employees of the state and of every county and city shall
12 furnish the department upon request, such information within their knowledge
13 and control as the department deems necessary. Local agencies shall report in
14 such uniform format as may be required by the department.
15 (3) The department shall be required to maintain a central registry for
16 the reporting of child neglect, abuse and abandonment information. Provided
17 however, that the department shall not retain any information for this purpose
18 relating to a child, or parent of a child, abandoned pursuant to chapter 82,
19 title 39, Idaho Code.
20 (4) The department shall make periodic evaluation of all persons in its
21 custody or under its supervision for the purpose of determining whether exist-
22 ing orders and dispositions in individual cases shall be modified or continued
23 in force. Evaluations may be made as frequently as the department considers
24 desirable and shall be made with respect to every person at intervals not
25 exceeding six (6) months. Reports of evaluation made pursuant to this section
26 shall be filed with the court which vested custody of the person with the
27 department. Reports of evaluation shall be provided to persons having full or
28 partial legal or physical custody of a child. Failure of the department to
29 evaluate a person or to reevaluate him within six (6) months of a previous
30 examination shall not of itself entitle the person to a change in disposition
31 but shall entitle him, his parent, guardian or custodian or his counsel to
32 petition the court pursuant to section 16-1622, Idaho Code.
33 (5) In a consultive capacity, the department shall assist communities in
34 the development of constructive programs for the protection, prevention and
35 care of children and youth.
36 (6) The department shall keep written records of investigations, evalua-
37 tions, prognoses and all orders concerning disposition or treatment of every
38 person over whom it has legal custody. Department records shall be subject to
39 disclosure according to chapter 3, title 9, Idaho Code, unless otherwise
40 ordered by the court, the person consents to the disclosure, or disclosure is
41 necessary for the delivery of services to the person. Notwithstanding the pro-
42 visions restricting disclosure or the exemptions from disclosure provided in
43 chapter 3, title 9, Idaho Code, all records pertaining to investigations, the
44 rehabilitation of youth, the protection of children, evaluation, treatment
45 and/or disposition records pertaining to the statutory responsibilities of the
46 department shall be disclosed to any duly elected state official carrying out
47 his official functions.
48 (7) The department shall establish appropriate administrative procedures
49 for the processing of complaints of child neglect, abuse and abandonment
50 received and for the implementation of the protection, treatment and care of
51 children formally or informally placed in the custody of the department under
52 this chapter including, but not limited to:
53 ( 1a) Department employees whose job duties are related to the child pro-
54 tective services system under this chapter shall first be trained as to
55 their obligations under this chapter regarding the protection of children
1 whose health and safety may be endangered. The curriculum shall include
2 information regarding their legal duties, how to conduct their work in
3 conformity with the requirements of this chapter, information regarding
4 applicable federal and state laws with regard to the rights of the child,
5 parent and others who may be under investigation under the child protec-
6 tive services system, and the applicable legal and constitutional parame-
7 ters within which they are to conduct their work.
8 ( 2b) Department employees whose job duties are related to the child pro-
9 tective services system shall advise the individual of the complaints or
10 allegations made against the individual at the time of the initial con-
11 tact, consistent with protecting the identity of the referrant.
12 (8) The department having been granted legal custody of a child, subject
13 to the judicial review provisions of this subsection, shall have the right to
14 determine where and with whom the child shall live, provided that the child
15 shall not be placed outside the state without the court's consent. Provided
16 however, that the court shall retain jurisdiction over the child, which juris-
17 diction shall be entered on any order or petition granting legal custody to
18 the department, and the court shall have jurisdiction over all matters relat-
19 ing to the child. The department shall not place the child in the home from
20 which the court ordered the child removed without first obtaining the approval
21 of the court.
22 (9) The department shall give to the court any information concerning the
23 child that the court may at any time require, but in any event shall report
24 the progress of the child under its custody at intervals of not to exceed six
25 (6) months. The department shall file with the court at least five (5) days
26 prior to the permanency hearing under section 16-1622, Idaho Code, the perma-
27 nency plan and recommendations of the department. There shall be a rebuttable
28 presumption that if a child is placed in the custody of the department and was
29 also placed in out of the home care for a period not less than fifteen (15)
30 out of the last twenty-two (22) months from the date the child entered shelter
31 care, the department shall initiate a petition for termination of parental
32 rights. This presumption may be rebutted by a finding of the court that the
33 filing of a petition for termination of parental rights would not be in the
34 best interests of the child or reasonable efforts have not been provided to
35 reunite the child with his family, or the child is placed permanently with a
37 (10) The department shall establish appropriate administrative procedures
38 for the conduct of administrative reviews and hearings as required by federal
39 statute for all children committed to the department and placed in out of the
40 home care.
41 (11) At any time the department is considering a placement pursuant to
42 this act, the department shall make a reasonable effort to place the child in
43 the least disruptive environment to the child and in so doing may consider,
44 without limitation, placement of the child with related persons.

STATEMENT OF PURPOSE
The purpose of this bill is to make various codifier corrections to
the Idaho Code. In the course of a legislative session, multiple
amendments to a single code section, chapter or title are
frequently passed. Occasionally, these multiple amendments result
in conflicting numbering of sections or subsections. In addition,
in some instances, separate sections of the code contain citations
to sections or subsections which contain conflicting numbering due
to multiple amendments. Conflicting citation numbering is
identified at the time session laws for any given year are
incorporated into the existing code. Sections or subsections
containing conflicting numbering are redesignated by the codifier.
Redesignated code citations are set forth in brackets following
citations as set forth in session laws. The bracketed citation
remains in the code until the affected section undergoes a future
amendment and then, at that time, a correction to the citation
number is made. This method of indicating codifier corrections is
often confusing to the reader. Rather than waiting for future
amendments to the various affected sections, this bill compiles
those code sections affected in the legislative sessions prior to
2006 that contain conflicting numbering so that the designations
may be corrected.
There is no fiscal impact as a result of this bill.
