Leveraging the Every Student Succeeds Act to Improve Educational Services in Juvenile Justice Facilities | What We Can Learn from Indiana’s Responsible Data Sharing

Within this brief on the Every Student Succeeds Act there is a description of practices implemented by the Indiana Department of Education (IDOE). By assigning each student a nine-digit identifying number, whether in juvenile justice schools or in other schools around the state, the IDOE has effectively ensured that all student’s and their records are included in the state’s educational data. The IDOE has also worked with the Indiana Department of Corrections to remind teachers, school administrators, and guidance counselors in traditional schools that facility schools are accredited and that student records should be transferred so that students can continue with their educational plans.
