Education Services

DJJ operates a Local Education Agency (LEA) recognized as the California Education Authority. Our LEA contains three High Schools that are accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC), in each of our correctional facilities. Each high school provides youth with curriculum that meets the California Department of Education requirements for High School and is similar to what students would receive in their local community. Youth are scheduled to attend school based on their individual academic needs. Our goal is to have each youth earn their high school diploma while they are with us. Youth whose commitment period is too short to fulfill the high school diploma requirements are given an opportunity to earn their GED. High School graduates and GED recipients may further their education and training by participating in post-secondary course work or Career Technical Education as space allows.

DJJ provides Special Education and English Learner services to all students who qualify with fully credentialed faculty. Education rights holders are encouraged to participate in the Individualized Education Program process for the youth they represent.
