Students who get involved with the child-welfare or juvenile justice systems can be particularly at risk of falling off track academically, but interventions that bring in community supports can help buffer them, finds a new American Youth Policy Forum report.

The most-effective programs for vulnerable students, particularly those who have experienced both the foster-care and juvenile justice systems, are those that:

• Explicitly seek and use students' voices;

• Provide comprehensive supports during transitions, such as when a student ages out of foster care or leaves a correctional facility;

And align data, supports, and policies from all the different groups that serve students, from the schools they attend to employment agencies.
