Author:Bruce Borkosky

Subject:Re: CPS and public schools

I looked at the FL statistics a while back. It was interesting to see that a large number of reports were from schools. I suspect the reason is the amount of access the schools have vis à vis children. However, (and I forget how this was calculated), teachers were one of the groups least likely to report (IOW, teachers often failed to report actual abuse).

More specifically, I am in need of articles, research, etc. that looks at how this type of relationship is forged and if there have been positive outcomes as result of the partnership. For example, lower rates of reports from teachers, more services for at-risk families, etc. I am beginning a program evaluation where a city school is hiring CPS workers and placing the CPS worker in elementary schools. The caseworker is supposed to help stabilize families so the family does not keep changing schools (i.e., excessive absences). This caseworker would essentially case manage specific families that have the highest risk for switching schools due to homelessness, substance abuse, etc. Thank you in advance for your help!
