Description of Proposed Guidance Document Changes
The changes to the CPS guidance are a result of legislation passed during the 2020 Session of the Virginia General Assembly and other programmatic updates.  Legislative changes to the GPS guidance include changes to: the retention time of unfounded investigations, family assessment time frames, expansion of mandated reporters, and changing the name of the sex trafficking assessment to the human trafficking assessment.  Programmatic updates include: additional training requirements for CPS workers and supervisors, clarification regarding timeliness of initial response, provision of safety services, utilization of the COMPASS Mobile Application, documentation time frames, and CPS Ongoing cases.
