State & Local Programs

State Organization Self-Assessment

The State Self-Assessment measures organizational compliance with our Standards for State CASA/GAL Organizations.  In the future, the State Self-Assessment will be completed via an online database. More detailed information will be disseminated to state organizations once the online database is available and ready in fall/winter of 2010/2011.

Only state organizations will be required to answer the following questions and provide the documentation requested in the Indicators of Compliance checklist.

If you have questions about this process, please contact the quality assurance staff.
