Learn about the definition and calculation of the CFSR statewide data indicator reentry to foster care.
This factsheet helps child welfare leaders, managers, data and continuous quality improvement (CQI) staff, and others understand and explain the Child and Family Services Review (CFSR) statewide data indicator reentry to foster care. This indicator measures whether children reenter foster care within 12 months of their discharge to permanency (excluding adoptions). Performance on this indicator is used as part of the CFSR Round 4 process to evaluate CFSR Permanency Outcome 1 and can also inform CQI, program monitoring, and strategic planning activities. Part of the CFSR Round 4 Statewide Data Indicator Series, this factsheet takes complex data calculations related to state and national performance and condenses them into a digestible reference for individual or group learning.
