It Really Is the Law!
  • Gary Rutkin talked about Section 1401 of NCLB and the requirement to provide services needed to make successful transitions to further schooling and to prevent students from dropping out of the education process. Youth in facilities that are for neglected or delinquent youth must be prioritized by their SEAs in an effort to assure their ability to compete with their non-institutionalized peers.

It Really is the Law x 2!
  • Title II of the Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Act of 2002 requires states to provide comprehensive juvenile justice and delinquency prevention programs that meet the needs of youth through collaboration with other agencies and local systems before which youth may appear, including school, cw, mh, health care orgs, law enforcement agencies, courts….. It specifically requires: 1) educational programs to encourage juveniles to stay in middle, secondary and/or alternative schools; 2) To provide services to assist juveniles in making the transition to the world of work and self sufficiency, and enhance coordination with local schools that such juveniles would otherwise attend; 3) Assure that the instruction juveniles receive outside their schools be closely aligned with the instruction provided in their home schools; and any information regarding learning disabilities identified in other placements be communicated to the schools.
