Since 2006, Santa Cruz County has maintained a System Improvement Plan (SIP) Steering Committee that is charged with oversight and monitoring of the County’s SIP strategies and action steps. In 2014, the SIP Steering Committee was instrumental in collaboratively working with Santa Cruz County FCS and Juvenile Probation to assess performance on critical child welfare and probation outcomes, which resulted in the new 2015‐2020 System Improvement Plan. This committee, chaired by County Supervisor Bruce McPherson and the FCS Director, continues to meet quarterly to monitor the SIP. Members of the public are welcome to attend. Please see the 2019 SIP Committee Meeting calendar for committee meeting dates and times.
