Background Discussion

The attached Children's Services Annual report is presented by the Children's Services Advisory Board.  The plan is divided into three sections based on the data, which includes: 

  • Future Children's Services funding goals and priorities for Fiscal Year 2016/2017;
  • A recap of the 2015/2016 Fiscal Year budget, funding priorities, and programs approved for funding;
  • A report on the use of FY 2014/2015 funds for each priority category.

The draft report also includes new initiatives recommended by the Advisory Board to address child and family issues, some of which were identified and discussed during the October 13, 2015, work session and others identified through review of indicator data during the Advisory Board's Annual Retreat held on October 16, 2015.

The Advisory Board reviews and evaluates children and family indicator data regularly in their determination of the types of programs that should be recommended to meet the needs of children and families in our community.
