CWS-CARES 2.6 Release -Coming Soon to all Organizations
To all CDSS, County, Probation, Karuk, and Yurok Directors/Chiefs, SPOCS, Technical and Training Contacts:
The CARES 2.6 release includes enhancements to the Child Welfare History Snapshot (hereafter referred to as Snapshot) functionality. For details about Snapshot, reference the CARES 2.6 Release Notes on the CWDS website at .
As part of implementation readiness activities to support Snapshot statewide rollout, the CWDS Implementation Team has been in contact with all of the organizations to capture user data. We have asked all organizations to provide a list of Snapshot users or to confirm the existing list of users we had to date. We encourage all organizations to provide or confirm the list of user data (if they haven't already), as this data will be used to identify a phased statewide implementation rollout. The user data is important as CWDS wants to ensure we can adequately support the number of users for each phase of the statewide rollout. We will support organizations with implementation efforts, we will provide training material and Organizational Change Management materials. The CWDS Service Desk will provide support as needed. Additionally, user data organizations provide will be utilized to grant users access to Snapshot via an internal CARES bulk load process. S
