  3. Mission & Vision of JJEEP • JJEEP’s mission is to ensure that each student assigned to a Department of Juvenile Justice (DJJ) program receives high-quality educational services that increase that student’s potential for future success.

  4. JJEEP’s Four Main Functions • Conduct research that identifies educational best practices • Conduct annual QA reviews of DJJ educational programs • Provide technical assistance to improve educational programs • Provide annual policy recommendations to the DOE

  5. Results from 2008-2009 • Increased the number of exemplary programs from 27 to 68 • Exemplary programs in every region • Overall residential average increased from 5.08 to 5.77 • Used over 30 peer reviewers this review cycle • Only three programs scoring below 4.00 in the state

  6. JJEEP’s efforts for improvement • QA reports provided to programs and school districts within 45 days of the review • Communication via listserv, materials posted on our Web site, reviewer contacts • Focus on student outcomes • Use of research/data for continuous improvement of QA standards and process • Partners for improvement

  7. Networking/Mentoring • Opportunities provided during the conference • Mentor programs/school districts assigned to lowest performing programs

  8. Advisory Board/Standards Revision • Standards are reviewed & revised annually with solicited input from stakeholders • Developed Advisory Board with school district, private providers, and educational program representatives to help guide SR this year

  9. Changes to the 2009-2010 QA Standards & Process • No numerical scores assigned • Combined educational personnel qualifications and professional development requirements under curriculum and instruction • Integrated community involvement, collaboration, and learning environment expectations into curriculum and instruction

  10. Changes to the 2009-2010 QA Standards & Process • Incorporated specially designed instruction and related services indicator into curriculum and instruction • New standard for exit transition

  11. 2009-10 QA Review Protocol • Schedules are developed annually by program administrators from the 5 DJJ regions and the JJEEP Director • On-site reviews will include a needs assessment to prepare for the shift in 2010-2011 to a more student outcome-oriented review • Average three-day review

  12. QA Review Protocol • Self-reports due July 17 (updated in Jan.) • JJEEP contacts school districts and programs to review self-report information the Wednesday prior to the review • Reviewer reviews last year’s QA and TA reports and CAPs received

  13. On-Site Protocol Education entrance meeting • Explanation of process • Identification of contact person • Scheduling: interviews, exit meeting • Schedule agreed upon • Tour of facility

  14. QA Methodology Document Review Interviews Observations

  15. Document review • Review • self-report documents • student files (open and closed) • curricular documents • contract/cooperative agreement • personnel documentation • school improvement plan • current SD comprehensive reading plan • policies and procedures • lesson plans/ grade books

  16. Document review is a guide for interviews and observations InterviewObserve Students Classrooms Teachers Transition meetings Support staff Treatment Team School district staff Guidance/Transition Staff

  17. Communication • Daily debriefing with DJJ • Daily debriefing with lead educator and other interested parties to discuss concerns, clarify questions, provide list of other information needed • As needed, with contract manager and/or program administration • Exit meeting on last day

  18. QA Review Protocol and Rating Guidelines • New methods/requirements will be piloted • All benchmarks rated pass or fail • Multiple data sources to evaluate quality • Policy, document review, interviews, and observations • Preponderance of evidence to determine whether the intent of the indicator is being met • POLICY + PRACTICE = OUTCOME

  19. Exemplary Programs • Exemplary status will not be assigned during 2009-10 review cycle • Exemplary programs still asked to help provide assistance to low-performing programs

  20. Needs Assessment - Purpose • Pilot for the 2010-11 QA review cycle • Focuses on program and student outcomes and the processes that impact student outcomes • Collaborative process among JJEEP, the program, and the school district • Needs Assessment findings will not impact QA results • Results will be used to inform the 2010-2011 QA standards and methods

  21. Needs Assessment - Purpose • Some changes have already occurred • Focus on transition, curriculum and instruction, and teacher qualifications • Less emphasis on administrative requirements • New self-report process and information

  22. Needs Assessment - Content • Program processes and decision making in • Transition • Curriculum and Instruction • Staff Qualifications and Retention • School District Oversight and Evaluation • Possible outcomes for the 2010-2011 cycle • Student gains based on entry/exit BASI results • Reading gains based on PMRN or MIS • Student progression rates • Attendance rates (day treatment)

  23. Needs Assessment - Conducting • Full Reviews – The Needs Assessment will be conducted on site as part of the QA review. • To identify program’s strengths and weaknesses and assist them in preparing for the 2010-2011 QA review cycle

  24. Needs Assessment - Conducting • Exemplary Reviews – The Needs Assessment will be conducted through a Web based and/or telephone reporting system. • To identify promising practices in Exemplary programs and inform the 2010-2011 QA standards and process

  25. Needs Assessment - Findings • Transition process and how it prepares individual students for return to school and/or employment • Curriculum/instruction and how it provides learning opportunities for individual students

  26. Needs Assessment - Findings • Staff retention rate and retention strategies • School district oversight and evaluation methods and the use of student performance measures to improve services

  27. Needs Assessment - Findings • Commendations – Since programs will not be receiving numerical QA ratings in 2009-2010, Commendations noted for exceptional practices will be noted in the Needs Assessment • Considerations – Needs Assessment Considerations will be developed with input from program and/or school district administrators

  28. Needs Assessment - Examples Process Questions • What student progression opportunities does the program provide (i.e., credit recovery, competency-based programs, or online learning)? • How is monitoring of student progress used to enhance instruction and services? • How does the program prepare students for returning to school and/or the community?

  29. Needs Assessment - Examples Outcomes • What student outcomes are used to enhance instruction (i.e., entry/exit testing, reading progress monitoring, credits earned, student progression, diplomas earned, return to school rates)? • What is the program’s in-field teaching rate? Retention rate? • What are the program’s student gains or student progression outcomes?

  30. Needs Assessment • During the 2009-2010 review cycle, JJEEP reviewers will meet regularly to discuss Needs Assessment results • Reviewers will solicit input regarding program and student outcomes for the 2010-2011 cycle and the processes that are important to achieving these outcomes
