Rule 5. Board Review
(a) A review board may agree to hear any person who formally requests to be heard at the child's case review, as long as the person has some connection with or knowledge of the child or family situation.
(b) Other persons directly concerned with the foster care review board system or with a legitimate interest in the system may be permitted to attend a review meeting if all interested parties present agree.
(c) In the event that the chairman of a review board is unable to attend a review or to perform his duties at any particular time, the vice chairman will exercise the duties of the chairman until such time as the chairman can resume them. If neither the chairman nor the vice chairman is present, the chairman or vice chairman when acting as chairman shall designate a member as acting chairman.
(d) The chairman or those acting in that capacity shall perform such duties as are indicated in these rules or as customarily devolve upon the chairman of a committee.
(e) Pursuant to appropriate statute, in any review the general public may be excluded and only such persons admitted as have a direct interest in the review and the Review Board acting through the Chairman may excuse any party from any hearing.
(f) In the event that a child is present to give information the chairman may ask that one board member or one member and staff assistant meet privately with the child if it is determined that this would facilitate the child's ability to communicate.
(g) Notwithstanding any provision of this rule, the Administrative Director, review board coordinator or review board staff are authorized to attend all meetings of a foster care review board.
