Applications Being Accepted for School Pathways Project

July 31, 2013


The National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges (NCJFCJ) is accepting applications from courts for its "School Pathways to the Juvenile Justice System Project," funded by the Atlantic Philanthropies, the Public Welfare Foundation, and Open Society Foundations. NCJFCJ will select as many as 16 court jurisdictions seeking to reduce or eliminate the "school-to-prison pipeline." NCJFCJ will provide training and technical assistance to support judicial leaders in reducing referrals of youth to juvenile courts for school misbehavior, encouraging positive school disciplinary practices, engaging students, and keeping them in school. The Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention is funding an evaluation of the project.

The deadline for applications is September 15, 2013.


Apply online.
