Leveraging the Every Student Succeeds Act to Improve Educational Services in Juvenile Justice Facilities


National Reentry Resource Center

Abstract

This policy brief from the American Youth Policy Forum (AYPF), the National Reentry Resource Center, and the CSG Justice Center provides state and local policymakers as well as education and juvenile justice leaders with information about how they can use requirements under the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) to improve education and workforce outcomes for youth in long-term juvenile justice facilities. The brief

  • Summarizes relevant ESSA provisions and outlines its key accountability requirements;
  • Highlights three priorities for states to focus on as they contemplate accountability for juvenile justice programs and schools;
  • Provides key questions to help state leaders consider their current policies and identify gaps and opportunities for improvement; and
  • Features states that are carrying out promising practices in each of the three priority areas, which can serve as examples for other states that are seeking to improve accountability for juvenile justice schools.
