Tennessee Court Improvement Program Strategic Plan 

To ensure thoughtful program and project management, each state court applying for CIP funding is required to create and submit a five-year strategic plan that identifies outcomes the state and court will address and the projects and activities that they will undertake to achieve them. An updated strategic plan must be submitted to the Children's Bureau annually.

The Judicial, Court, and Attorney Measures of Performance

The Judicial, Court, and Attorney Measures of Performance (JCAMP) Project is funded by the Children’s Bureau and conducted by the Capacity Building Center for Courts (CBCC). JCAMP aims to help child welfare, legal, and other professionals understand and improve child welfare court practices by shaping the decision-making process regarding data collection. Tennessee was chosen as an implementation site in January 2023.

The Tennessee Court Improvement Program (CIP) curated an interdisciplinary JCAMP team to select and capture JCAMP Performance Measures. These Performance Measures fall into five categories (Engagement, Due Process, High-Quality Legal Representation, Safety, Permanency) and overlap along three dimensions (Professional Practice, Court Process, Family Experience).
