Parole Agents at a meeting

How to Request Transcripts and Certificates from the California Education Authority

The Education Services Branch operates as a local education agency (LEA) called the California Education Authority. The Branch Deputy Director/Superintendent of Education is responsible for all aspects of the education program for 11 high schools within our youth correctional facilities, two satellite schools in parole centers and four satellite programs located in the department's youth conservation camps.

Education has remained a strong component of our treatment programs within the Division of Juvenile Justice, even before the creation of the California Education Authority. As a result, we receive many requests on how former wards can get a copy of their transcripts.

Here's how to make your requests:

Transcript Request: We need, full name, date of birth, CYA ID #, institution name, approximate timeframe of attendance, daytime phone number, and if applicable, graduation date. Please mail or fax your request with all pertinent information to:

Division of Juvenile Justice

General Educational Development (G.E.D.) Verification: We need full name, date of birth, social security number, testing center (DJJ Institution), test date and mother's maiden name.
