CAPITAL REGION LEADERSHIP SUMMIT
ON SCHOOL-JUSTICE PARTNERSHIPS
The Commission, in partnership with the New York State Division of Criminal Justice Services (DCJS) and New York State United Teachers (NYSUT), sponsored the Capital Region Leadership Summit on School-Justice Partnerships: Keeping Kids in School and Out of Court at the NYSUT headquarters in Latham, NY and the NYSUT Watertown and Plattsburgh Regional Offices on November 6, 2013. The Summit provided an opportunity for local stakeholders to come together and focus on the school-justice connection in order to promote promising and emerging practices and policies of our education and justice systems that can help children succeed in school and in turn reduce the number of children entering the juvenile and adult court systems as well as deal more effectively with the students who do get involved in the justice system.
The Summit Program provides the agenda and short introductions for the speakers as well as acknowledges the student reporters and assistants and the Statewide Summit Planning Team.
