Standards for Foster Family Services Systems for Public Agencies: User's Guide.
American Public Welfare Association, Washington, DC.
This users' guide provides a structured methodology to assist public agencies in using the revised "Standards for Foster Family Services Systems" as a self-assessment tool. The first section, which deals with data sources, lists the types of written information which agencies need to apply the standards as assessment criteria and indicates the job titles of individuals who might be able to provide that information. The second section focuses on the description of data, providing a description of each named data source to assist users in finding data labeled differently by different localities and states. The third section provides some key or opening questions for each standard that users can ask as they examine the data and conduct their assessment. (JMB)
