FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — The Administrative Office of the Courts has announced details about five more public forums that are being held around the state in an effort to improve the state's foster care system.

The agency says Citizen Foster Care Review Boards are hosting forums on March 30 in Florence, April 8 in Owensboro, April 9 in Madisonville, April 15 in Frankfort and April 18 in Louisville. Two forums, one in Lexington and one in Somerset, have already been held.
