This self-assessment tool is designed to aid correctional administrators in evaluating and improving their release planning practices. With funding from the Annie E. Casey Foundation and in partnership with the Wisconsin Department of Corrections, Urban Institute staff developed and piloted a monthly assessment tool for individual correctional institutions and a yearly assessment tool for correctional agencies to monitor overall departmental performance. The policies and procedures identified as best practices in the tool are drawn from Release Planning for Successful Reentry: A Guide for Corrections, Service Providers, and Community Groups.
