 Introduced  by Sen. BAILEY -- (at request of the State Education Depart-
   ment) -- read twice and  ordered  printed,  and  when  printed  to  be
   committed to the Committee on Education
 
 AN  ACT  to establish a juvenile justice education task force to address
   effective coordination and programmatic coherence in the provision  of
   educational  opportunities  and  services  to  certain  students;  and
   providing for the repeal of such provisions upon expiration thereof
 
   THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND  ASSEM-
 BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:
 
   Section  1.  Legislative  findings  and  declarations. The legislature
 hereby finds and declares that there is a significant lack of  effective
 coordination  and programmatic coherence in the provision of educational
 opportunities and services to students  in  juvenile  justice  settings.
 When youth must be confined, detention and placement settings provide an
 opportunity to re-engage them in their education and future and to reset
 their trajectory. These programs must plan for and support youth reentry
 to the community, including working with the student's school of reentry
 to ensure credits are granted for work accomplished while in confinement
 and  re-enrollment  in  school  in  the  community. Educational programs
 provided in juvenile justice settings  have  struggled  to  recruit  and
 retain  New  York  State  certified teachers; provide access to all core
 academic courses required to obtain a New York  State  Regents  Diploma;
 and  design quality, culturally and linguistically responsive and engag-
 ing instruction to meet the extensive, critical needs of  this  consist-
 ently  shifting  student population. Lack of access to state and federal
 education  funds  for  core  educational  services,  delayed  access  to
 students'  records, rolling admissions and discharges, as well as barri-
 ers to re-enrollment, and providing supports to students as they transi-
 tion back to public and nonpublic schools have contributed to this situ-
 ation.  Incarcerated youth funds were  originally  to  support  students
 between  the  ages of 16 and 21 in county jails. Since implementation of
 New York's "raise the age law" pursuant to part WWW of chapter 59 of the
 laws of 2017, incarcerated youth funds for jails have declined,  as  16-
 and  17-year-old  students  are  placed  in detention and other settings

                       [ ] is old law to be omitted.
