While preparing for the Child and Family Services Review (CFSR), child welfare agency staff and their partners can use this Systemic Factor Data Planning Worksheet to consider evidence of how well their staff and provider training meets federal requirements. A well-functioning training program ensures that agency staff, staff of state-licensed or approved facilities, and foster and adoptive parents build the knowledge and skills needed to promote the safety, permanency, and well-being of children.

Complete the worksheet’s fillable tables to:

  • Document available data sources that can be used to respond to Statewide Assessment questions and demonstrate systemic factor functioning
  • Plan to fill identified data gaps and address data limitations

The tool draws from and should be used together with the more comprehensive information presented in Assessing Systemic Factor Functioning Using Data and Evidence. After completing this worksheet, use similar worksheets to identify data sources for other systemic factors.
