Low-level student discipline referrals from schools to police clog the juvenile justice system and slow down police response time for other, real criminal offenses. Juvenile court judges have taken a stand. Judge Steven C. Teske is their leader.

Judge Teske is the Chief Judge of the Juvenile Court of Clayton County, Georgia, and has worked with the Annie E. Casey Foundation to create the Juvenile Detention Alternatives Initiative (JDAI). Judge Teske brings together key stakeholders, including educators, law enforcement officers, juvenile court judges, and families to implement the protocol, which has been proven to reduce student discipline referrals and even increase academic outcomes such as graduation rates.
