High-performing child welfare agencies have something in common. An urgent attention to how children in their care are doing—and continuously measuring their outcomes.

A Child Welfare Leader’s Desk Guide to Building a High-Performing Agency describes these 10 critical practices and provides metrics to help agencies, advocates, governors, legislators and others take a snapshot of how they are doing and chart a course for improvement.
Part one describes 10 practices and outcomes for measuring where an agency stands compared to others in the field.
Part two links to research and tools agency staff members can use to make the case for change and implement new approaches. Appendices provide information on related topics, such as how to upgrade agency data collection and how to measure racial and other disparities.
