Juvenile Court Student Transition Statewide Work Group Report and Recommendations to the Legislature

Published On: July 1, 2016


Assembly Bill 2276 (Bocanegra, 2014) required a statewide work group to study successful transition programs and to develop recommendations of how to better support youth transitioning from juvenile court schools back to schools in their communities. This report highlights recommendations that came out of three meetings of the work group, composed of stakeholders from probation, education, advocacy organizations, and the community. Recommendations include: a transition plan for each court school student, designated school personnel to support a successful transition, and guaranteed access for students to credit recovery programs. The group also noted the need for state-level oversight of juvenile court school transition procedures and outcomes.
