The premise of the Self-Evaluation Team is threefold:
To develop databases that track children through their experiences in out-of-home care by drawing on information already collected in routine program operations.
To compile information about children in out-of-home care from a variety of other agencies (such as Mental Health, Healthcare, Education, Probation, Juvenile Justice, etc.) that serve families and children.
To build self-evaluation teams that pull together information on a continuing basis, and more importantly, use the information to improve Child Welfare policies and practices.
With support from the Self-Evaluation Team, a variety of tools are developed that help manage and evaluate Child Welfare Services and Outcomes. This information provides an analysis of Child Welfare activity, including longitudinal analysis, population profiles, and caseload forecasting. This also includes adaptations to Child Welfare Information Systems that produces increased utilization of information yielded and new insights regarding improved systems to maximize positive outcomes for our children and their families.
