Following a series of three meetings with stakeholders from throughout Williamson County, the Foster Care Task Force identified local statewide suggested improvements to the foster care system. The recommendations are outlined below.

Local Issues

A. Problem A –Need for better communication: Lack of centralized list of available resources and services in the county and lack of information sharing capabilities/technology/software for all those working on case such as the judge, assistant county attorneys, CPS case workers, CASA volunteers, school resource folks, counselors and so forth.

Solutions: 1. Create a digital list of all resources, managed by county

2. Create a single ROI (Request of Information) to take to any school, MH, Etc.

3. Create a TEA form for foster care ID or a quick way to identify foster children when they enter a new school

4. Create/implement a digital “case management” software, accessible by all involved in the case, such as Family Wizard
