Deal shakes up Ga. child welfare agency

ATLANTA (AP) — Gov. Nathan Deal is overhauling Georgia's child welfare agency, replacing the current director who will now report directly to the governor.

The move Thursday is part of a broader effort to improve delivery and oversight of child and family services after the high-profile deaths of children whose families had some involvement with Georgia child welfare agencies.

Deal said in a statement that Bobby Cagle, who currently leads the Department of Early Care and Learning, will become the interim director of the Division of Family and Children Services. He replaces Sharon Hill, who will be moving over to the Governor's Office of Planning and Budget.

Amy Jacobs, currently a senior policy adviser at that office, will replace Cagle as interim commissioner of the Department of Early Care and Learning.
