††††† (2)(a) To select a partner, the department shall develop and apply criteria identifying the appropriateness of a potential partner.† The criteria must seek to ensure that the partner has a long-range business plan, which may include the sale of hatchery surplus salmon, including eggs and carcasses, to ensure the long-range future solvency of the partnership.† The business plan may also allow the partner to harvest hatchery chum salmon in a designated area through persons under contract with the partner as provided under a permit from the department or by rule of the commission.† All chum salmon harvested must be sold at prices commensurate with the current market and all funds must be utilized by the partner to operate the hatchery.

††††† (b) Partners under this section must be:

††††† (ii) A for-profit private entity; or

††††† (4) Agreements entered into with partners under this section must be consistent with existing state laws, agency rules, collective bargaining agreements, hatchery management policy involving species listed under the federal endangered species act, or, in the case of a tribal partner, any applicable tribal hatchery management policy or recreational and commercial harvest policy.† Agreements under this section must also require that partners conducting hatchery operations maintain staff with comparable qualifications to those identified in the class specifications for the department's fish hatchery personnel.

††††† (5) All partnership agreements entered into under this section must contain a provision that requires the partner to hold harmless the department and the state for any civil liability arising from the partner's participation in the agreement or activities at the subject hatchery or hatcheries.

††††† (6) All partnership agreements entered into under this section must identify any maintenance or improvements to be made to the hatchery facility, and the source of funding for such maintenance or improvements.† If funding for the maintenance or improvements is to come from state funds or revenue sources previously received by the department, the work must be performed either by employees in the classified service or in compliance with the contracting procedures set forth in RCW 41.06.142.

(7) If deemed necessary and appropriate by the director, department enforcement officers may conduct background checks on potential partners described by subsection (2)(b)(i) and (ii) of this section prior to the department executing a partnership agreement."

††††† (9) Persons or agencies exchanging information under subsection (7) of this section shall not further disseminate or release the information except as authorized by state or federal statute.† Violation of this subsection is a misdemeanor.

††††† (a) The department believes there is a serious threat of substantial harm to the child;

††††† (b) The report indicates conduct involving a criminal offense that has, or is about to occur, in which the child is the victim; or

††††† (c) The department has a prior founded report of abuse or neglect with regard to a member of the household that is within three years of receipt of the referral.

††††† (11)(a) Upon receiving a report of alleged abuse or neglect, the department shall use one of the following discrete responses to reports of child abuse or neglect that are screened in and accepted for departmental response:
††††† (i) Investigation; or
††††† (ii) Family assessment.
††††† (b) In making the response in (a) of this subsection the department shall:
††††† (i) Use a method by which to assign cases to investigation or family assessment which are based on an array of factors that may include the presence of:† Imminent danger, level of risk, number of previous child abuse or neglect reports, or other presenting case characteristics, such as the type of alleged maltreatment and the age of the alleged victim.† Age of the alleged victim shall not be used as the sole criterion for determining case assignment;
††††† (ii) Allow for a change in response assignment based on new information that alters risk or safety level;
††††† (iii) Allow families assigned to family assessment to choose to receive an investigation rather than a family assessment;
††††† (iv) Provide a full investigation if a family refuses the initial family assessment;
††††† (v) Provide voluntary services to families based on the results of the initial family assessment.† If a family refuses voluntary services, and the department cannot identify specific facts related to risk or safety that warrant assignment to investigation under this chapter, and there is not a history of reports of child abuse or neglect related to the family, then the department must close the family assessment response case.† However, if at any time the department identifies risk or safety factors that warrant an investigation under this chapter, then the family assessment response case must be reassigned to investigation;
††††† (vi) Conduct an investigation, and not a family assessment, in response to an allegation that, the department determines based on the intake assessment:
††††† (A) Poses a risk of "imminent harm" consistent with the definition provided in RCW 13.34.050, which includes, but is not limited to, sexual abuse and sexual exploitation as defined in this chapter;

††††† (C) Constitutes conduct involving a criminal offense that has, or is about to occur, in which the child is the victim;
††††† (D) The child is an abandoned child as defined in RCW 13.34.030;
††††† (E) The child is an adjudicated dependent child as defined in RCW 13.34.030, or the child is in a facility that is licensed, operated, or certified for care of children by the department under chapter 74.15 RCW, or by the department of early learning.
††††† (c) The department may not be held civilly liable for the decision to respond to an allegation of child abuse or neglect by using the family assessment response under this section unless the state or its officers, agents, or employees acted with reckless disregard.
††††† (12)(a) For reports of alleged abuse or neglect that are accepted for investigation by the department, the investigation shall be conducted within time frames established by the department in rule.† In no case shall the investigation extend longer than ninety days from the date the report is received, unless the investigation is being conducted under a written protocol pursuant to RCW 26.44.180 and a law enforcement agency or prosecuting attorney has determined that a longer investigation period is necessary.† At the completion of the investigation, the department shall make a finding that the report of child abuse or neglect is founded or unfounded.

††††† (b) If a court in a civil or criminal proceeding, considering the same facts or circumstances as are contained in the report being investigated by the department, makes a judicial finding by a preponderance of the evidence or higher that the subject of the pending investigation has abused or neglected the child, the department shall adopt the finding in its investigation.

††††† (((12))) (13) For reports of alleged abuse or neglect that are responded to through family assessment response, the department shall:
††††† (a) Provide the family with a written explanation of the procedure for assessment of the child and the family and its purposes;

††††† (14) In conducting an investigation or family assessment of alleged abuse or neglect, the department or law enforcement agency:

††††† (a) May interview children.† If the department determines that the response to the allegation will be family assessment response, the preferred practice is to request a parent's, guardian's, or custodian's permission to interview the child before conducting the child interview unless doing so would compromise the safety of the child or the integrity of the assessment.† The interviews may be conducted on school premises, at day-care facilities, at the child's home, or at other suitable locations outside of the presence of parents.† If the allegation is investigated, parental notification of the interview must occur at the earliest possible point in the investigation that will not jeopardize the safety or protection of the child or the course of the investigation.† Prior to commencing the interview the department or law enforcement agency shall determine whether the child wishes a third party to be present for the interview and, if so, shall make reasonable efforts to accommodate the child's wishes.† Unless the child objects, the department or law enforcement agency shall make reasonable efforts to include a third party in any interview so long as the presence of the third party will not jeopardize the course of the investigation; and

††††† (((16))) (18) The department shall use a risk assessment process when investigating alleged child abuse and neglect referrals.† The department shall present the risk factors at all hearings in which the placement of a dependent child is an issue.† Substance abuse must be a risk factor.† ((The department shall, within funds appropriated for this purpose, offer enhanced community-based services to persons who are determined not to require further state intervention.
††††† (17))) (19) Upon receipt of a report of alleged abuse or neglect the law enforcement agency may arrange to interview the person making the report and any collateral sources to determine if any malice is involved in the reporting.

††††† (((18))) (20) Upon receiving a report of alleged abuse or neglect involving a child under the court's jurisdiction under chapter 13.34 RCW, the department shall promptly notify the child's guardian ad litem of the report's contents.† The department shall also notify the guardian ad litem of the disposition of the report.† For purposes of this subsection, "guardian ad litem" has the meaning provided in RCW 13.34.030.

††††† (a) A screened-out report, within three years from the receipt of the report; and

††††† (b) An unfounded or inconclusive report, within six years of completion of the investigation, unless a prior or subsequent founded report has been received regarding the child who is the subject of the report, a sibling or half-sibling of the child, or a parent, guardian, or legal custodian of the child, before the records are destroyed.

††††† (3) The department may keep records concerning founded reports of child abuse or neglect as the department determines by rule.

††††† (4) ((An)) No unfounded, screened-out, or inconclusive report or information about a family's participation or nonparticipation in the family assessment response may ((not)) be disclosed to a child-placing agency, private adoption agency, or any other provider licensed under chapter 74.15 RCW without the consent of the individual who is the subject of the report or family assessment, unless:
