The Federal Government recognizes that everyone involved in the protection of children is committed to the goals of safety, permanency, and well-being for every child. However, commitment to these goals is not enough. There must be a continuous process of improving and strengthening dependency systems and cross-system supports. Performance measurement is only one step in that process, but it is a critical first step. To better serve and protect vulnerable children, we must first know how our current systems are doing. Two Federal agencies — the Dept. of Health and Human Services’ (HHS) Children’s Bureau and the Dept. of Justice’s Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) — have cosponsored a broad-based effort to measure the progress of juvenile and family courts in addressing the needs of abused and neglected children. This effort models the Federal ideals of collaboration and cooperation. It blends information and experience from two key initiatives: the Children’s Bureau performance measurement project and OJJDP’s Strengthening Abuse and Neglect Courts Act (SANCA) project. Three of the Nation’s leading court reform organizations — the Am. Bar Assoc., the Nat. Center for State Courts, and the Nat. Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges — have provided technical support. The Toolkit for Court Performance Measures in Child Abuse and Neglect Cases is the result of this collaborative effort. The Toolkit provides practical, comprehensive guidance on how to undertake performance measurement and move toward more efficient and effective dependency court operations. Pilot tested in 12 diverse sites, the Toolkit reflects a breadth and richness of experience that will make it useful for any juvenile or family court. Figures.
