Indiana DCS Not Up To Standards

The Indiana Department of Child Services is failing to meet state standards when it comes to caseloads for family case managers.

The Annual Report to the State Budget Committee shows just 3 of 19 regions were in compliance with the 12/17 standard for state fiscal year 2013.

The 12/17 standard says case managers are supposed to have no more than 12 active cases and 17 children monitored.

The report indicates staff turnover and an increased number of cases are to blame for the problem.

In its report to the State Budget Committee, DCS said to get into compliance, the state would need to hire 110 new family case manager positions at a cost of nearly $6.8 million.
