LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 2132, as introduced, Grove. Foster care: provider performance data.
Existing law establishes the California Child and Family Service Review System, which is used to review all county child welfare systems on specified performance and outcome measures. Existing law requires those reviews to cover child protective services, foster care, adoption, family preservation, family support, and independent living. Existing law requires the State Department of Social Services to conduct those reviews of each county and requires that county child welfare systems that do not meet established compliance thresholds receive technical assistance to assist with implementing best practices to improve their performance and make progress toward meeting established levels of compliance. Existing law requires a county to be responsible for, and accountable to, the department for child welfare program performance measures and to submit an update to the department, no less than annually, on its progress in achieving improvements from the county’s baseline for the applicable measure. Existing law requires the department to monitor, on an ongoing basis, county performance on those measures and to conduct a comprehensive review of county performance on those measures at least once every 5 years.
This bill would express the intent of the Legislature to enact legislation to incorporate the collection and reporting of individual foster care provider performance data into the California Child and Family Service Review System in order to better inform child placement decisions and identify opportunities to improve the performance of, and to provide additional training to, individual foster care providers.
