FAMILY COURT MEASURES PERFORMANCE IN DEPENDENCY & NEGLECT CASES

The Family Court was awarded funding by the Court Improvement Program. The program provides funding to States and Tribes to develop programs that focus on preventing the abuse of children in troubled families, protecting children from abuse, and finding permanent placements for those who cannot safely return to their homes. Through this funding the court has created and implemented a stand-alone database to collect data and track information on all the Dependency and Neglect cases in the State of Delaware. Delaware is the first state to have a statewide system collecting all 30 of the Federal Children's Bureau's Toolkit for Court Performance Measures. Performance measurement is a vital part of making sure that Family Court succeeds in its efforts on behalf of children who have been abused and neglected to promote the well being of every child.
