Leveraging the Every Student Succeeds Act to Improve Educational Services in Juvenile Justice Facilities | Accountability For Continuous Improvement in Florida

This brief of the Every Student Succeeds Act highlights a policy and practice change implemented by the State of Florida. Because of 2014 legislation and through collaborations between the Department of Juvenile Justice, Florida’s Department of Education, district schools, and other educational providers, requirements in measuring outcomes of juvenile justice schools and programs were created. This action has proven to be an important tool in ensuring accountability for Florida’s care and treatment of students in the juvenile justice system.
