OJA REPORT – Chis Mechler and Amy Raymond:
The OJA consolidation committee hasn’t been formed yet. The KACSO Board requested that at least 1 KACSO board member be added to the committee.
OJA believes that Bill 367 will play a big part in consolidation.
DOC believes that because the bill states that DOC can take all moderate to high YLS score cases, then Court Services would receive all 0-9 YLS score cases.
Asked if KACSO could post the OJA51 reports monthly onto our website, and it was stated that it shouldn’t be a problem.
YLS online is on the agenda, and September will probably be the test date.
The online LSIR will have a section that will remind you when scores need to be updated.
There is a summary report that can be printed off to attach to the back of the PSI/PDI.
Access will not be given to anyone other than CSOs.
New CSO YLS training for next year will be August 23/24/25 in Wichita, KS; September 21/22/23 in Manhattan, KS.
New CSO LSIR training for next year will be November 1/2/3.
Continuing Education training: on line training will be offered on October 4 in Wichita, KS; on October 5 in Hays, KS; and on October 6 in Topeka, KS.
OJA is considering purchasing e-learning from University of Cincinnati to complete the 4 hours of education CEUs CSOs need for Spring.
Some other options being looking into: at least 2 sessions of Epics training. Will only be able to hold 30 CSOs per session, so 1st come 1st served.
Winter scoring training will be offered online again. Dates and time should be available by November.
Case Planning Training: will be offered August 23/24/25 in Wichita, KS; September 20/21 in Manhattan, KS; November 1/2/3/4 in Topeka, KS. Everyone who supervises Juveniles will need to go to this training.
Will look into Epics 2 to be provided at conference.
July 20, 2016 will be the 1st meeting on the setting of YLS scores.
2 CSOs will be on this committee, and Stephanie Springer (27th) will be one of the CSOs.
The online LSIR will be up and running by July 1, 2016 to all districts.
