Building School-Court Cooperation: The Berrien County Model. Technical Assistance Bulletin 22.
National School Resource Network, Washington, DC.
This bulletin addresses the issue of improving interagency cooperation between the school and the court for the purpose of coordinating their efforts to reduce violence and vandalism within the school and the community. The experiences of Berrien County (Michigan) are used to illustrate the process of assessing, formalizing, and maintaining communication between the school and the court. The Berrien County Court-School Seminar Project was designed to foster interagency communication and to better equip educators to deal with behavior problems. The school-based Peer Group Counseling program is an innovative method for dealing with problems in the school setting. (Author/MLF)
