CHILD ATTORNEY BOARD | Print |

Board Established by: County

Description:
On October 20, 2010, a resolution was passed (Item #10-1041) modifying the composition of the board to allow a Fulton County Commissioner or a Commission designee to serve as the chairperson of the board. On October 7, 2009, the Fulton County Board of Commissioners passed a resolution (Item #09-0996) to permit current members of the Child Attorney Board to continue their service through the 18 month duration of the decree as referenced in paragraph 9 of the Modified Consent Decree of May 18, 2009, removing all references to staggered terms. On October 15, 2008, a Resolution (Item #08-0820) was adopted by the Board of Commisssioners to change the board name to the Child Attorney Board. This change reflects the childdirected model of representation utilized by the Child Advocate Attorney's Office. This Board was established at the Fulton County Board of Commissioners' Recess Meeting, March 21, 2007,(Item #07-0288). The Board of Commissioners believes that the best interests of foster children in Fulton County will be served through creation of an independent Child Advocate Board, which will serve to provide oversight of the policies and procedures within the Office of the Child Advocate Attorney and directly supervise the managing Child Advocate Attorney. This Board will make recommendations to the County Manager regarding the oversight of the polices and procedures within the Office of the Child Advocate Attorney and the hiring and firing of the managing Child Advocate Attorney.
