RAC Evaluation The RAC or readiness assessment consultation is a thorough evaluation of your jurisdiction’s overall will and capacity to effectively address racial and ethnic disparity. The BI evaluates a series of internal and external factors that impact a jurisdiction’s “readiness” to positively impact racial and ethnic disparities in its system. Included among those factors are: Purpose of detention and detention utilization; Community engagement and collaboration; System stakeholders’ engagement and collaboration; Data collection and analysis capacity; and Current juvenile justice policies and practices. When the consultation is complete, the BI provides a report, which includes its findings and a corresponding set of recommendations. Once stakeholders have received the report, the BI facilitates an on-site debrief to discuss the report and potential future engagement. Ramsey County, a system with an all-time low of 8 youth in detention, found the RAC critical to their success. Read more about Ramsey County and the RAC.
