The Department of Children’s Services (DCS) could be out from under federal court oversight by 2017 if the agency can continue to make progress in its care of foster kids, The Tennessean reports. DCS has been under court oversight since 2001 after New York city-based Children’s Rights filed suit over mismanagement. "We've done a lot of hard work in recent years, and we think we are very close to meeting court orders,” DCS commissioner Bonnie Hommrich said.
