Blog Post: Letter From The Director: One REL Wraps Up, A New One Begins

From yesterday’s inbox (I seem to be on a bit of a REL kick lately)…

A new blog post is available on relnei.org:

Letter from the Director: One REL Wraps Up, A New One Begins

Statistics for December 2016

This entry is being posted back-dated.

Over the past month there were 4,150 hits to this blog from 1,937 different visitors, which has actually been quite consistent over the past few months – up a few hundred hits and down a few dozen visitors.

I’m back to not being able to access the old statistics page again.

And interestingly, I didn’t get a year in review statistics message for 2016 like I have for the past few years (see 2013, 2014, and 2015).  I also didn’t do an annual statistics message – time just got away from me over the holidays (my first year working at a Jewish institution and we don’t close for the Christmas holidays, and there seemed to be more to do there than I expected)…  Maybe during my blogging birthday (although I might do a back dated one in the next week or so).  Anyway…

Finally, the statistics from my old blog site (which still does generate some traffic)…

Statistics for November 2016

This entry is being posted back-dated.

Over the past month there were 3,915 hits to this blog from 2,076 different visitors, which has actually been quite consistent over the past few months (and up almost a thousand from November 2015 – which I strangely have access to once again).

While I do have access to the old statistics page again, it is actually over a week into the new month by the time I found a few free moments to post this.  So I won’t provide all of the gory details until the end of December – when I’ll do both December and all of 2016 together.

Finally, the statistics from my old blog site (which still does generate some traffic)…

New On Our Blog: Improving Educational Outcomes for Oregon’s Incarcerated Youth

Also from Friday’s inbox…

What educational barriers do youth face when they enter and exit the juvenile justice system, and what support do incarcerated youth need to keep their education on track?

Improving Educational Outcomes for Oregon’s Incarcerated Youth

By Brandi Holten and Sarah Frazelle

However, to get a real sense of what happens to these youth—and to begin conversations about how to improve their educational outcomes—it takes a deeper understanding of how communication and collaboration should connect the juvenile justice system and schools.

To help identify appropriate educational programs for incarcerated youth and build awareness among school and district leaders on how to best support their students who enter and exit the justice system, we are working with the Donald E. Long (DEL) Juvenile Detention Center in Portland, which is one of the Juvenile Detention Education Program (JDEP) facilities in Oregon. The primary purpose of JDEP is to house youth who have been recently detained or are awaiting trial, and the average stay is five to 11 days.

Through our research and communication with DEL, we have identified the following barriers for incarcerated youth. …
