Creating a Vision and Strategic Plan to Support NC's Child Welfare Supervisors
Supervisors carry the burden of making sure that family-centered child welfare practice happens. The NC Division of Social Services wants to help supervisors with this task. That’s one of the reasons it has invited supervisors from county departments of social services and other stakeholders to join with it to create a strategic plan to strengthen supervision in North Carolina.
Supervision Work Group
The group, which began meeting monthly in October 2007, is laying the groundwork for a new vision and strategic plan for supervision in North Carolina. It is assessing the current culture of child welfare supervision, exploring the gap between stated expectations of supervisors and the actual practice of supervision, and discussing how the training provided to supervisors could be improved. Staff from the National Resource Center for Organizational Improvement and the National Resource Center for Child Welfare Data and Technology are facilitating the strategic planning process.
The Strategic Plan
This strategic plan is a key part of our state's federal Program Improvement Plan.
