Performance-based Standards Learning Institute Releases New Publication

The Performance-based Standards Learning Institute has released "PbS Perspective July 2017." This biannual brief provides a national snapshot of juvenile justice residential care based on data-driven performance-based standards. "PbS Perspective July 2017" highlights survey findings that show that family engagement is important to reducing recidivism and ensuring positive outcomes for youth in confinement. Launched in 1995 by OJJDP, Performance-based Standards sets standards for safety, rehabilitation services, programming, reentry, and family connection.
