Background Discussion

December 11, 2012, the FY2014 Children's Services Annual Plan was approved by BOCC.  The plan contained a compilation of history, current statistics, and future planning of the Children's Services Advisory Board (CSAB).  It demonstrates the needs of children and aids the CSAB in its determination of the most serious problems affecting, or presenting the highest probability of causing harm to, individual children in Manatee County.

On February 28, 2013, the Community Services Department working with the Manatee County Sheriff's Office determined the need to amend the data pertaining to violent offenses committed by youth contained in the FY2014 Children's Services Annual Plan on pages 8 and 19.  Information from the Department of Juvenile Justice web site was used to verify and accurately amend the plan's data pertaining to violent offenses committed by youth. 

An amendment to the FY2014 Children's Services Annual Plan is needed at this time to ensure the plan contains accurate information to aid the CSAB in determining the most serious problems affecting Manatee County children and recommending funding to meet the greatest needs of Manatee County children and their families.
