  1. $0.00
This brief policy analysis defines reentry, describes federal efforts to support successful reentry of juvenile justice offenders, relates the prevalence of students with disabilities in the juvenile justice system and recounts recommended reentry strategies from experts in the field. The findings from interviews with four states (AZ, GA, HI, OR) and a review of program-related documents are provided. The primary goal of these four state programs is to reduce recidivism by supporting the smooth transition of youth with disabilities from correctional facilities to community-based schools, jobs and support services. Although each state’s program is distinctive, common themes emerged. For example:
  • Interagency collaboration and infrastructure supporting the sharing of information are critical to developing an effective support network for youth on reentry.
  • A continuum of supports starting while youth are still residing in facilities and continuing after their release helps bridge the transition.
  • The role of a transition facilitator is key.
  • Reentry programs must be comprehensive in nature.
  • Budgetary constraints are a significant barrier to sustaining effective programming.
  • Tracking student outcomes is critical to understanding which features of a program promote success.
