One transition specialist position responsible for coordinating the transition of youth at institutions to community facilities (step-down programs) is eliminated. As JJRA's population continues to decline, workload ratios need to be adjusted accordingly. JJRA has a capacity for 118 youth in community facilities and, on average, approximately 5 youth transition to community facilities each month. Reducing the transition specialist staff from three to two will result in a workload of 12-13 placements per month per staff.
