Supporting Monitors of Child Welfare Litigation Settlements

Advocates for children and public child welfare agency are engaged frequently in class action litigation. In many states and localities, the parties sign settlement agreements that commit the public agency to undertake reforms and meet performance goals. As part of these settlements, monitors are appointed to provide neutral assessments of the progress of reforms. Action Research supports the monitors by analyzing administrative data provided by public agencies and consulting on data and analysis issues.
