Subject:Re: CPS caseloads - legislation and research

Did a quick search and ran across what might be a good starting point for an overview: https://www.childwelfare.gov/pubPDFs/case_work_management.pdf Looks like you may find state-level legislation on standards in Delaware, Florida, Indiana, and Texas (see p. 4) There's also a 2008 report on workload: http://calswec.berkeley.edu/sites/default/files/uploads/the_study_of_workload_in_child_protective.pdf Might want to reach out to the authors of that report to see if they have any updated info. Good luck! Regards, Kevin ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Kevin A. Gee, Ed.D.
