Section 1116.2 et seq. of Title 10 of the Oklahoma Statutes mandates the establishment of review boards for each judicial district to review the case of each child alleged or adjudicated deprived.
(1) The child's court file is reviewed by the local post adjudication review board (PARB) at least once every six months until the court case is dismissed.
(2) PARB reviews the case of each child adjudicated deprived pursuant to the laws of another state or territory, when the child resides in Oklahoma and OKDHS has agreed to provide services to the child pursuant to the Interstate Compact on the Placement of Children (ICPC) or other agreement concerning the child.
(3) The PARB's findings and recommendations are submitted to the court within ten days of any review hearing.
(4) PARB reports its findings to OKDHS and may report these findings to the agency or court in the state having jurisdiction.
(5) A person employed by OKDHS may be appointed to a board and may participate in any court hearing concerning the case of any child subject to review by PARB; however, the OKDHS member may not participate as a board member, in a hearing in which he or she is a party or is professionally involved.
