Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2003, $198,700)

The purpose of this grant is to fund School Intervention Workers (SIW) to monitor, direct, and assist the school-time activities of juveniles on probation and promptly report issues and successes to probation officers and school personnel who can then help the juveniles successfully complete probation and school. As probation officers are not located on school premises full-time and have other duties requiring their presence elsewhere, the SIWs will work directly with youth on probation in the classroom and in extra curricular activities. Such work includes classroom mentoring, coaching, coordination of assistive services, addressing issues that arise during the school day, helping youth to maintain a stable presence in school, and involving them in extra curricular activities.
