The Court Improvement Training Academy
Director: Timothy Jaasko-Fisher
The Court Improvement Training Academy (CITA) is a new program designed to create a learning community comprised of judges, lawyers, and other professionals involved in the juvenile court dependency process. CITA is funded by a grant of federal Court Improvement Program money administered by the Washington State Administrative Office of the Courts. CITA learning opportunities are centered around a philosophy which blends innovative interdisciplinary research and practical solutions to everyday problems faced in child welfare law.
