The Critical Role of Schools in Combating Disproportionate Minority Contact (DMC): National Perspective and Local Solutions (November 2010)

Research has demonstrated that youth of color are disproportionately represented at all levels of involvement within the juvenile justice system. This Webinar focuses on how LEAs and schools can serve as a buffer instead of an entry point into the juvenile justice system for minority youth who are at-risk. During the Webinar, DeAngela Milligan, NDTAC Technical Assistance Liaison discusses the connection between community schools and DMC and examines some general DMC reduction strategies. In addition, John T. Hall, Coordinator, Memphis City Schools Department of School Security, and Emergency Management discusses a promising DMC reduction program being used in Memphis City Schools called the School House Adjustment Program Enterprise (S.H.A.P.E.).
