Juvenile Justice initiatives of PEATC are designed to promote disability awareness and engagement that involves the 7 P’s (Principals, Police, Parents, Pastors, Proprietors, Partners, and Politicians). It emphasizes rights of students with disabilities while encouraging policies and protocols that support capacity building in educational settings for at-risk students. The goal is to promote collaboration and education involving stakeholders in communities throughout the Commonwealth of Virginia which reverse the school to prison pipeline.
