(b) The licensee's participation shall include the following:
(1) Identifying and sharing information, as appropriate, with individuals who are directly involved in the child's case plan, including any treatment outcomes the child achieves while in the family foster home and the attainment of developmentally appropriate life skills that the child needs to become functional in the community;
(2) reporting the child's behaviors and other important information to the child's child-placing agent, the sponsoring child-placing agency, and others as indicated in the child's case plan;
(3) recommending changes in the child's case plan to the child's child-placing agent, if needed, including any approval needed for special activities or privileges, and participating in the case-planning conferences for the child; and
(4) giving the child-placing agent additional significant information about the child in foster care as it becomes known.
(c) A licensee shall not disclose medical or social information relating to any child in foster care without authorization from the child's child-placing agent, unless the disclosure is directly related to obtaining necessary services for the child or to ensuring safe involvement in age-appropriate activities.
(d) In order to meet the needs of each child placed in the home, each licensee shall implement the provisions assigned to the licensee in the case plan and shall follow the policies of the sponsoring child-placing agency for the care of the child.
(e) Each licensee shall seek consultation and direction from the child's child-placing agent or the sponsoring child-placing agency if issues arise that cannot be resolved between the licensee and the child in foster care. (Authorized by and implementing K.S.A. 65-508; effective March 28, 2008.)
