Under state law, local governments are tasked with adopting minimum training and educational standards for juvenile case managers. S.B. 61 passed during the 82nd Regular Legislature (2011) mandated the establishment minimum training and educational standards for juvenile case managers. Prior to this enactment, Texas law established no minimum standard of training or education for juvenile case managers. See also, Meeting the S.B. 61 Mandate.
