In addition, the District committed to continuing the Children and Youth Community Service Reviews (CSRs) with the assistance of Human Systems and Outcomes (HSO). The Settlement Agreement set the 2013 CSR System Performance target at 70% acceptable performance.
The 2012 CSR was conducted in May 2012 and reviewed 89 children and youth. Results of the 2012 review indicated 71% had overall acceptable status ratings. Overall system performance was found acceptable for 65% of the children and youth. Review activities were conducted by a team of external reviewers and DMH staff trained on the protocol. Logistical support was provided by the Far Southeast Family Strengthening Collaborative Inc.
The 2013 CSR is scheduled for May 6 – 24, 2013.
