Accessibility of the Report
Another focus of the 5-year plan is to ensure that the Task Force Report is accessible to, and useable by a wide variety of end-user YSOs. As stated above, the Task Force Report is intended to address the development and sustainment of child abuse prevention and intervention plans and programming by a diverse set of YSOs throughout the state. This diversity will require distribution by a variety of means and publication in a variety of formats. The intent is to maximize the usefulness of the report – or sections of the report – for YSOs attempting to create an initial child protection structure (or attempting to assess their present safety structure against the recommendations and standards it contains).
- In addition to distribution of the complete legislative report, the Task Force will work to ensure that the Report is published in various, useable formats like handbooks, pamphlets and manuals, targeted at specific YSO communities and specific to their needs.
- Another way for the Report to be available to a diverse set of YSOs is to ensure it is put online on a state-of-the-art, instrumented software platform that allows users not only to look at the entire report, but also to identify the type of YSO they represent. The system can then use that information to automatically point the user to the pertinent sections of the report, and “customize” the presentation of the material, along with links to external organizations, sample forms and policies, tools, and training.
