Since the start of the pandemic, juvenile and family courts have had to make difficult decisions on how to best engage and support participants and connect them with services when it's not possible or safe to do so in person.
During the "Court, COVID and Permanency" webinar at 2:30 ET on September 24, hear members of Pima County's (AZ) Family Treatment Court team, including Judge Ken Sanders and Senior Recovery Support Specialist Linda Perry, discuss the operational decisions they made and their considerations for the future.
The court was also a participant in NCSC's national study of virtual child welfare hearings, and observations and findings from the study will be presented.

About a year ago, CCJ and COSCA adopted a set of guiding principles for post-pandemic court technology that called for courts “to adopt a remote-first or remote-friendly approach…when moving court processes forward.” A new scan by the RRT’s Technology Work Group and the Remote and Virtual Hearings Implementation Lab reveals where many courts are adapting rules for remote proceedings and what those rules look like. Join us for a live webinar and high-energy discussion at 3 pm on Sept. 30, on where such rules have been adopted, and how concerns about the digital divide, public access, and participant safety are being addressed. Speakers will also spotlight how their courts wrote guidelines to uphold virtual courtroom decorum and rules for making the record in a virtual environment. Register here.
