Reentry Programs for Students with Disabilities in the Juvenile Justice System: Four State Approaches. inForum
Muller, Eve
Project Forum
Evidence strongly supports the notion that juvenile offenders, both with and without disabilities, are significantly more likely to experience successful reentry into their home schools and communities if appropriate programs and supports are in place. In spite of this, comprehensive state-level reentry programs for youth are few and far between. The first section of this document defines "reentry", describes recent federal efforts to support successful reentry for youth, discusses the prevalence of youth with disabilities in the juvenile justice system, explains why reentry programming matters and summarizes recommended strategies for successful reentry. The second section describes four states' efforts to support the successful reentry of juvenile offenders into their home schools and communities. (Contains 8 footnotes.)
