Improved CPS numbers after pay raises, Dallas Morning News reports

When Texas legislators approved emergency $12,000 per year raises for most Child Protective Services caseworkers on December 1, TexProtects CEO Madeline McClure commented, "Mark this day: Child Protective Services caseworker turnover will drop starting today."

Today, we are cautiously optimistic that new numbers from CPS may be supporting this prediction. According to today's Dallas Morning News, since the pay raises were approved, turnover at the agency has dropped significantly, and high-priority children are being seen in a more timely fashion.

The problems at CPS are far from over, but we are pleased by these early indicators that things may be moving in the right direction. In the current Legislative session, TexProtects continues to push for the proper resources to be directed at CPS to ensure the best possible outcomes for Texas' children.
