Following is a DRAFT Mock-up of what the tech piece MIGHT look like. I am currently working with a tech company to create the best possible site. There will be an app that is compatible with both iOS and Android devices.
First-time access only.
Each time they log in, they are asked if their information needs to be updated. If they choose “Yes, but…” they will receive a reminder to update in subsequent sign-ins. The advantage to this is that the updated information can be uploaded once on the site, instead of sending multiple emails/making repeated phone calls.
Two critical dates appear at the top of each screen: the date of the next hearing, and the date of the next FTM. Below that are three drop down menus: documents, contacts, and resources.
The case number and name appear at the top of each screen.
The drop down menu for “Documents” includes .pdf orders, FTM notes, approved Case Plans, and the Monthly Task Letter. In all cases, the most recent document is at the top for easy access.
This is a way for anyone to update his/her contact information once. The information would simply be name, role (e.g., parent, DHS, attorney), phone and email.
The Resources page includes links to services (community or otherwise), as well as general information about a wide variety of topics related to parenting and/or juvenile court.
In addition to the site, the vision includes text notifications to remind clients of upcoming court hearings and family team meetings.
