Safety Outcome 1

For Safety Outcome 1, the data indicators are individual measures:

  • Absence of maltreatment recurrence: Of all children who were victims of substantiated or indicated abuse or neglect during the first 6 months of the reporting year, what percent did not experience another incident of substantiated or indicated abuse or neglect within a 6-month period?
  • Absence of child abuse and/or neglect in foster care: Of all children in foster care during the reporting period, what percent were not victims of a substantiated or indicated maltreatment by foster parents or facility staff members?

Note that safety outcomes determined to not be in substantial conformity must be given priority by the State in its Program Improvement Plan.
