Background Discussion
Two items will be discussed at today's work session:

1. An Update on the Results First Initiative , a shift from funding to investing Children's Services Dedicated Millage, was introduced to the Board of County Commissioners in August 2016 by consultant Hal Williams.  Mr. Williams has been working with county staff and non-profit agencies to bring forth this concept through prototype groups, workshops, and one-on-one sessions.

2. The Children's Services process for identifying the needs in the community for children who are abused, neglected, abandoned and/or economically disadvantaged has undergone changes in the way in which it programs are evaluated.

An update will be provided in these two areas.
