dc.description.abstractExecutive Summary: The Child Welfare Accountability Act of 2006 (Maryland Family Law, Section 1301 through 1311 inclusive) specified the development and implementation of a process to measure the efficiency and effectiveness of child welfare services in Maryland that addresses the safety, permanency and well-being of children in the care and custody of the state. A set of performance indicators were established that encompassed and expanded upon existing federal measures in four areas of child welfare practice: 1. Child abuse and neglect, 2. Protecting children in out-of-home care from abuse and neglect, 3. Permanency and stability of children in out-of-home care, and 4. The effectiveness of efforts to address the health, mental health, education, and well-being of children in out-of-home care. This report, the fifth Child Welfare Accountability, Performance Indicators report, describes and documents the performance indicators mandated in the Child Welfare Accountability Act for the period July 1, 2010 through June 30, 2011. Comparisons are included in relation to outcomes from prior years. A separate companion report entitled "Quality Assurance Processes in Maryland Child Welfare" describes and evaluates Quality Assurance processes in calendar year 2011.
