Juvenile Justice Information Exchange

The Juvenile Justice Information Exchange (JJIE) is a publication on juvenile justice and related issues based at Kennesaw State University in Georgia. The JJIE provides information and links to resources on a number of juvenile justice topics, including mental health and substance use disorders, community-based alternatives, juvenile indigent defense, evidence-based practices, racial-ethnic fairness, re-entry, and dual status youth. Each topic area provides general information regarding each topic, as well as links to practice guides, issue briefs, evidence-based research, and other resources relevant to the particular topic.

The re-entry section discusses challenges in education for incarcerated youth with a particular focus on transition and re-entry. This section provides links to resources relating to barriers to re-enrollment in school, the importance of continuity of education and sharing of education records, the need for education within detention facilities that is consistent with community school curricula, and the need for collaborative and effective re-entry planning that begins when incarceration is anticipated.
