Creating Successful Transitions for Students Served Under Title I, Part D-Subpart 1&2
One of the most critical times for a youth involved in the juvenile justice system is when they transition to/from a correctional facility out of/into the public school environment. As educators we can support this vulnerable, and often overlooked, group of youth through the use of our Title I, Part D programming and funding. This presentation will discuss the barriers of a successful transition for youth entering and leaving detention facilities. We will highlight some of the most common pitfalls these youth encounter as they move between the different educational systems. We will provide strategies on navigating these pitfalls and improving successful transitions for youth entering and leaving detention facilities. We will share how TIPD funding can be used to support the youth in the transition process and share promising practices from the field. Additionally, we will provide a brief overview of the TIPD program.
