We hope you all had a restful and joyous holiday season and that you have returned energized and renewed.

As you know, the 6-Month NCASA survey for July through December 2022 will be due soon.

We work very closely with the data team at National CASA to ensure that we always have the most current surveys in CasaManager for you. The survey you will need is Stats: NCASA 6 mo. ( 2022 Jul-Dec ). This means that you will be running data for the last six months of 2022 ( July 1 – December 31 ). Once you select that report, you will need to enter the start date as 7/1/22 and the end date as 12/31/22. On the next screen, you will be prompted to confirm the PREVIOUS 6-month start and end dates as 1/1/22 and 6/30/22. That is because there are very specific questions on the 6-Month survey which ask about the 6 months prior to the current date range of 7/1/22 through 12/31/22. If you have a date range other than 1/1/22 and 6/30/22 in that window, that means that your current date range is incorrect and you need to go back to fix that.

We recommend that you start running your preliminary 6-Month survey sooner rather than later. This gives you time to troubleshoot missing or bad data long before the end of the survey period.

It may also be a good idea for you to run and fix your data using the Data Review Dashboard in tandem with running your preliminary 6-Month survey. This will help you repair your data in advance.

If you run into any data issues that you cannot resolve using the Data Review Dashboard, please let us know and we will be happy to help you.

Thank you for all of your dedicated efforts on behalf of children and volunteers!

If we get any additional information from National CASA, we will update the 6-Month survey accordingly.
