4 of 10 CPS Regional Directors Are Fired, Fifth Retires

As part of his 10-point plan for reforming CPS issued in July, DFPS Commissioner Hank Whitman recently had all 10 CPS regional directors reapply for their jobs – which led to four firings and one director choosing not to reapply.

“Child Protective Services officials fired four high-ranking managers this week, saying the changes are part of a strategy to reform an agency under fire for failing to protect the state’s most vulnerable children from being abused or killed.

Officials at CPS said they decided not to rehire four of the 10 regional directors, all of whom were recently forced to reapply for their jobs. A fifth regional director in El Paso retired rather than reapply.”
