NCJFCJ Technical Assistance Bulletin: Collecting Data and Sharing Information to Improve School-Justice Partnerships


National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges (NCJFCJ)

Abstract

The National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges (NCJFCJ) has released "Collecting Data and Sharing Information to Improve School-Justice Partnerships." This technical assistance bulletin, funded by the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP), explores the central data needs for school-justice partnerships and issues related to sharing information across agencies.

The National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges (NCJFCJ) is at the forefront of a collaborative initiative to reduce the number of referrals to the juvenile justice system for school-based behaviors through the establishment of judicially-led School-Justice Partnerships. These partnerships seek to enhance collaboration and coordination among schools, mental and behavioral health professionals, law enforcement, and juvenile justice officials to help students succeed in school and prevent negative outcomes for youths and communities. The NCJFCJ and project partners have provided training and technical assistance to support local collaborative efforts to reduce the number of school-based arrests and referrals to juvenile court. Judicially-led School-Justice Partnerships on judicial leadership convene local system partners—juvenile court, education, law enforcement, community mental and behavioral health providers, youths and families, and the community-at-large—to identify areas for improvement and effective solutions required to reduce the rate of school-based arrests and referrals to juvenile court.

Accurate and complete data provide School-Justice Partnerships with a foundation to target their efforts, monitor implementation, and measure outcomes effectively. Poor data collection and management strategies can lead to inaccurate or incomplete data. Poor data strategies can waste time, result in misinformed conclusions, and be counterproductive to the work of the School-Justice Partnerships. In particular, this technical assistance bulletin provides guidance around what information to collect and how to use it to promote effective School-Justice Partnerships.
