Supporting Justice-involved Youth Point-of-Contact: 

Local School District Liaison Duties, Roles and Responsibilities

Ohio requires every district to identify a single point of contact for justice involved youth. The point of contact plays an important role in assisting with the development of each Whole Child Transition Plan. Having a point-of-contact available for justice-involved youth can increase collaboration, facilitate supports for students and families and streamline communication between partners.
