The head of Indiana’s Department of Child Services told a legislative panel that her agency is making progress to fix some of the problems at the troubled agency.
Director Terry Stigdon told lawmakers on the Interim Study Committee on Courts and the Judiciary Wednesday that the department has added attorneys and supervisors and is in the process of figuring out pay raises for employees.
Those were among the 20 recommendations the Child Welfare Policy and Practice Group (CWG) gave DCS in a report that came out in June after a six-month examination of the department. In response to the report done by CWG, the department hired Todd Meyer as associate director to oversee the implementation of some of the recommendations from the report.
