The Center will serve as evaluation partner to the Sonoma County Department of Probation in the latter’s implementation of the Keeping Kids in School (KKIS) project.
The KKIS project will provide case management and comprehensive services for families and youth who are at greatest risk for disengagement from school, to address attendance and truancy issues, and to prevent students from later justice system involvement.
The Center’s work will include process and outcome evaluations through interviews, analyses of archival data, and online surveys to meet the County’s evidence needs for KKIS.
The project is funded under the U.S. Department of Justice’s Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant (JAG) program and will run through 2017.
