The Department of Social Services engages in a review of child welfare services in each county to determine to what degree services are delivered in compliance with federal and state laws and agency policy; and assess the outcomes for children and families engaged in the child welfare system. The information obtained by the child welfare services review process will: give county staff feedback on the effectiveness of their interventions, direct state office technical assistance staff to assist county staff with their areas needing improvement, inform agency administrators of which systemic factors impair county staff’s ability to achieve specific outcomes, and direct training staff to provide training for county staff specific to their needs. Reports are now titled under Child Welfare Quality Assurance Review Report.
