Each court serves a cluster of contiguous counties, and a specially trained judge is appointed to travel to each county within a cluster on a given day to hear that county’s child welfare cases. The cluster courts were formed to enable rural counties to meet the state’s strict permanency status guidelines that were enacted January 1, 1998. Collectively, findings from the three study components will capture the ongoing nationwide process of court reform supported by the Court Improvement Program. A technical work group comprised of leading researchers, judicial and child welfare agency officials and representatives of public interest groups has been assembled to provide input at key points during the study. Respondents: Study respondents include individuals in the following categories among the three study sites noted above: • Court Improvement Program (CIP) administrators; • Judges; • Attorneys (representing the parent, child, and agency); • Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASAs) and Guardians Ad Litem (GALs); • Child welfare agency administrators; • Regional child welfare directors and supervisors; and • Child welfare agency caseworkers.
