AK DOC Reentry

First Meeting of the Implementation Steering Team

In addition to the AK-PRI Council, the Implementation Steering Team (IST) also met for the first time on May 28. This is a larger group of individuals that will work in a more “hands-on” approach to making decisions about the best ways to approach the plan and to implement at the community level. The IST will consist of smaller workgroups focusing on transition accountability, data/evaluation/performance, employment, housing and grant development & management. The IST will be tasked with figuring out the “nuts & bolts” of putting our state plan into practice and to operationalize the AK-PRI into the day-to-day work of the Department of Corrections. The IST will also meet again in October to begin the hard work of moving from theory to practice!
