  • Does not use for coordination
  • Data sharing

    Facilitated through the use of statewide information systems allowing for consistent data sharing between systems.

  • Committees or advisory groups

    Multidisciplinary groups that often have regularly scheduled meetings to brainstorm ways to improve systems integration.

  • Formal interagency MOUs

    Collaborative agreements to guide systems integration efforts

  • Informal interagency agreements

    Commonly based on historical practice, mutual trust, and recognition of the need to collaborate in order to serve dual-status youth.

  • Statute and/or rules

    Rules that mandate systems integration efforts

Summary

In Kansas there is currently no data sharing between the Kansas Department of Children and Families (DCF) and the Department of Corrections (DOC) at the state level regarding dual status youth. At the local level, data sharing is informal. Most often judges will hear both dependency and delinquency cases and can call a DCF caseworker into hearing if necessary. Judges have access to the 'full court system' to look up cases in DCF, but this process is not formalized.
