Continuing Education: ~ TX CASA Public Policy Team & Lubbock County District Attorney’s Office
August 10, 2022, Continuing Education
9 am – 12 pm
9 am – 10:30 am ~ TX CASA Public Policy Team will join us to review updates to policies that effect our work; including but not limited to child safety and positive marijuana tests.
10:30 am – 12 pm ~ Lubbock County District Attorney’s Office, Deirdre Ward will join us to discuss:
The new mandate on child safety,
How a CASA can express to the court whether it is safe for a child to be returned home,
The legal relationship between the DA’s office and Saint Francis? Does the DA’s office simply represent Saint Francis? How does this work?
The new law that says that a child cannot be removed based on a positive marijuana test; instead, it must impair the safety and wellbeing of the child; how is this determined?
