Engaging Schools in the Juvenile Drug Court: Promising Strategies from the Field

March 28, 2014

The NCJFCJ set out to gather the experiences and insights of JDC practitioners across the country who have worked to partner with schools. More than 40 practitioners — representing a variety of roles within the JDC — responded to online surveys or have joined focus groups. In this brief, we have distilled their contributions into a set of “promising strategies” in the hope that others will apply and build on what they've learned. We offer these strategies, not as conclusive recommendations or principles, but rather as a stepping-stone to further learning and growth in the field.
