State Executive Board

Welcome to CASCWA

Welcome to the California Association of Supervisors of Child Welfare and Attendance (CASCWA) website. My name is Tim Catlin, the new CASCWA State President. This year will conclude my 25th year in public education as a Music Teacher, School Counselor, and for the past 15 years, a Child Welfare and Attendance Administrator. This also marks my 14th year as a member of CASCWA. It is my pleasure and honor to lead CASCWA through the 2016 – 2017 year.

The mission of CASCWA in part, is to provide our members with current information and consultation in the area of Child Welfare and Attendance and Student Services. Please feel free to contact me with any questions, suggestions, or contributions you may have to better our website and our service to you.

Finally, on behalf of CASCWA, I would like to say thank you to Dr. Ammar Saheli on a very successful year as the 2015-2016 State President. His dedication and service as president will continue to have a positive effect for many years. Thank you Dr. Saheli for your outstanding work.
