(b) The commissioner of juvenile justice shall adopt rules and regulations establishing additional requirements for receipt of grants under K.S.A. 75-7038 through 75-7053, and amendments thereto, standards for the operation of the correctional services described in K.S.A. 75-7038, and amendments thereto, and standards for performance evaluation of the correctional services described in K.S.A. 75-7038, and amendments thereto.

(c) The commissioner of juvenile justice shall review annually the comprehensive plans submitted by a county or group of cooperating counties and the facilities and programs operated under such plans. The commissioner of juvenile justice is authorized to examine books, records, facilities and programs for purposes of recommending needed changes or improvements.

(d) In reviewing the comprehensive plan or any annual recommendations or revisions thereto, the commissioner of juvenile justice shall limit the scope of the review of the juvenile corrections advisory board's statement of priorities, needs, budget, policies and procedures, to the determination that such statement does not directly conflict with rules and regulations and operating standards adopted pursuant to subsection (b) and K.S.A. 75-7038 through 75-7053, and amendments thereto, and includes provisions to address racial, geographic and other biases that may exist in the juvenile justice system.

If the commissioner of juvenile justice determines at such hearing that there is not substantial compliance or satisfactory progress being made toward compliance, the commissioner of juvenile justice may suspend all or a portion of any grant under K.S.A. 75-7038 through 75-7053, and amendments thereto, until the required standards of operation have been met.
