Lack of coordination between all groups led to a process that is not as youth focused and comprehensive as it could be.

Improvements: Youth will have a more focused IDT process. Unnecessary information has been removed in the new process so only goals and development for the youth will be discussed at the meetings.Staff at the three institutions will work together with the youth to create one comprehensive plan for the youth. Staff will have access to all notes and goals about the youth through JJCMS. Staff will work as a team to ensure that the youth is prepared for a successful stay at the institution and re-entry into the community.
