SD Juvenile Corrections Gets High National Rating

June 5, 2013, 4:32 AM by Shawn Neisteadt


South Dakota officials say all the state's juvenile corrections programs have again reached the highest status possible under a national project that measures conditions and treatment services provided to incarcerated youth.

All three reporting programs at the State Treatment and Rehabilitation Academy near Custer obtained the highest status during the April data collection period for the Performance-based Standards project. South Dakota became the first state to have all its reporting programs achieve that status in April 2011 and repeated that performance in October last year.

The program was developed by the Council of Juvenile Correctional Administrators to identify, monitor and improve conditions and treatment services using national standards and measures of outcomes. Data is collected twice a year to measure safety, security, order, medical and mental health services, and programming.
