Neglected, Delinquent & At- Risk Youth Transition Program

  • Neglected, Delinquent & At- Risk Youth  Transition Program

    The Transition Program works at the Erie County Holding Center and Erie County Youth Services Center (Secure Detention). The Transition Counselors meet with students before and after their releases from these facilities, and develop re-entry plans to transition the students back to school and the community. The transition team works the educational staff at the Erie County Holding Center and Erie County Youth Services Center (Secure Detention) to support the students’ academic success.

    The Transition Program supports the youth, their family, and stakeholders through the process to make for a smooth transition. Ensuring accurate data collection, data reporting, and data use for program evaluation purposes are important and essential components of Title I, Part D.

    Data on academic and vocational outcomes provide information that the U.S. Department of Education needs to assess student progress, demonstrate whether programs are meeting requirements, and identify needs so resources can be targeted appropriately.

    Pre-post assessments are an integral part of assessing the academic progress of students in reading and mathematics in Title I, Part D. Having integrated, student-level, and longitudinal data collection systems is essential for sharing information, reducing the burden of data collection, producing high-quality data, and improving student achievement.
