Through this weekly update we will share the same data and county strategies for success that we have been sharing with county partners for more than a year.
For example, when we first started focusing on Timeliness of Assessment Closure approximately 50% of assessments of all concerns of suspected child abuse or neglect were closed within 60 days. Today, we've nearly reached our statewide performance goal of 90%.
This is but one of many aspects of the child welfare system that we monitors closely and is available on the CDHS Community Performance Center website.
Below are this week's data updates:
GOAL: Timeliness of Assessment Closure: 90%
Status: Colorado state performance: 89.1%
Timeliness of Assessment Closure measure performance continues to improve up from 89% last week to 89.1% this week, with 41 of the 64 Colorado counties achieving the goal of closing 90% of assessments of all concerns of suspected child abuse or neglect within 60 days.
This week Boulder, Huerfano, Montezuma, and Routt counties improved on the measure:
