This talk discusses a study that reports on 9th graders that attended CMSD in 2005-2008. The study looked at students classified into four groups: no system involvement, foster care only, delinquency only, and both foster care and delinquency. The groups were then compared on their school attendance and passage of the Ohio Graduation Test in grades 9-12. Their rates of homelessness services use and incarceration in local jails between the ages of 18-21 were also ascertained.
