NDTAC’s topical calls offer a forum for state Title I, Part D (Part D) coordinators and their state educational agency, subgrantees, and facility colleagues to learn and discuss challenges, questions, strategies, resources, and successes on a particular topic of interest related to students who are considered neglected or delinquent. Call #2 of this year’s series focused on the provision of the high quality, coordinated transition services needed to assist students in successfully transitioning from out of home placement (i.e., juvenile corrections, juvenile detention, residential facilities, residential treatment, etc.) to further schooling or employment. We were fortunate to have Washington State Title I, Part D Coordinator Ada Daniels, Olympic Educational Service District Executive Director of the Student Services Center Kirstin Schutte, and Former Education Advocate & Current Threat Assessment Coordinator Malorie Woods with us for the call. They provided an overview of the statewide Education Advocate Program. Like Utah’s Education Transition and Career Advocate Program featured in last year’s call series, the Education Advocate Program is another strong example of how states and local jurisdictions can support students as they move from secure facilities back into their home communities.
