REPLAY (RE-directive Pro-social Learning Alternative for Youth) is a collaborative program by Madison Metropolitan School District and Dane County Department of Human Services for 7th through 9th-grade boys who are enrolled in the Madison Metropolitan School District (MMSD) and under DCDHS supervision for delinquency concerns. It is a collaborative effort between MMSD and the Dane County Department of Human Services (DCDHS). The program is housed at the Neighborhood Intervention Program (NIP).
The purpose of the REPLAY program is to work with youth who are on County supervision and have had problems within the traditional school setting. The goal of REPLAY is to give each youth the skills necessary to successfully transition into a more formal school setting.
The target population is 7th through 9th-grade boys who are from the Madison Metropolitan School District and who are under delinquency supervision. Students must reside in Madison and be registered in an MMSD school. Both special education and regular education students are served. Special education students must have an Individualized Education Plan (IEP) meeting to change their placement to REPLAY.
Referrals are initiated by the assigned Dane County Department of Human Services Social Worker or the school. Eligible students are served on a first-come, first-served basis, with priority given to those with the greatest risk of residential placement.
