Establishment of a Re-Entry Model to Reduce Recidivism Among Court Ward Students.
Kammuller, Kenneth C.
The development and implementation of a Re-Entry Model designed to facilitate and monitor the adjustment of high school students returned to public school from a county commitment facility is described. Transition and follow-up procedures implemented through the model with a liaison teacher at the commitment facility school designated as the intermediary between the facility and the public school to assist students in their adjustment are presented, as well as results indicating significant reduction in the rate of adjustment. Details of the model, initially operationalized in a target school for a trial period and subsequently expanded to all high schools in Marin County, are provided including project activities of regular meetings among parents and school personnel which centered on student educational programs, progress, and transition back to regular school.
