Transition Teams

The Buckeye United School District serves youth detained in secure juvenile correction facilities in Ohio. According to researchers monitoring the district, each school “has a transition team that guides every student through an array of reentry skills, beginning at least six weeks before they return to their home communities. The team consists of the transition coordinator, the transition class teacher, the Career Based Instruction (CBI) teacher, and teachers to supervise online college classes or industry certification classes. CBI students spend two hours each day doing class work on job skills and career exploration. This is followed by work experience on campus for which the youth interviews. The transition coordinator continues reentry services after release by working with the parole officer, home schools and potential employers. The program tracks the transition of DYS youth at 30, 60, and 90 day intervals after release.”
