  2. Assure the efficient and effective operation and direction of various juvenile services. This includes responsible management of the juvenile institutions; proper selection and monitoring of juvenile delinquency prevention projects, shelter care facilities, and residential and nonresidential community treatment programs; and the effective administration of juvenile probation and parole services.
  3. Assure maintenance of American Correctional Association (ACA) accreditation standards for juvenile service programs and institutions; attain ACA accreditation for juvenile facilities, juvenile regional offices, and juvenile community residential centers and day-treatment programs.
  4. Lead efforts to reduce recidivism among juvenile offenders.

OBJECTIVES AND PERFORMANCE INDICATORS

Unless otherwise indicated, all objectives are to be accomplished during or by the end of FY 1999-2000. Performance indictors are made up of two parts: name and value. The indicator name describes what is being measured. The indicator value is the numeric value or level achieved within a given measurement period. For budgeting purposes, performance indicator values are shown for the prior fiscal year, the current fiscal year, and alternative funding scenarios (continuation budget level and Executive Budget recommendation level) for the ensuing fiscal year (the fiscal year of the budget document).
