Information Sharing Tool Kit

The Models for Change Information Sharing Tool Kit provides guidance to jurisdictions seeking to improve their information and data sharing practices in the handling of juveniles and reach the ultimate goal of improving the outcomes for those youths. The Tool Kit is presented in a format that includes a printed volume and a corresponding CD. This format provides the users with a sound theoretical background for effective information and data sharing practices along with practical tools (e.g. memoranda of understanding, consent forms, etc.) to conduct analyses of and to carry out those practices. Originally developed for Models for Change sites engaged in juvenile justice reform, this tool kit is now available by request to a wider audience of juvenile justice practitioners around the country who wish to enhance their practices
