Juvenile Court School
Shasta County Office of Education provides support and services for students in court schools. Incarcerated youth receive support in the the Shasta County Juvenile Court School. Services include a general education teacher, part-time support from a Resource Specialist to ensure students’ IEP goals and services are met and from 2 para-educators to ensure a low staff to student ratio. Individualized programs are developed and students have the opportunity to participate in Shasta-Trinity ROP courses. All students have access to a wide variety of educational technology and online applications for credit advancement or recovery.
- We believe that students in an alternative program benefit from individualized instruction that allows for a program designed for their individual needs and one-on-one or small group interaction with an instructor.
- We believe that making learning relevant to students will results in greater engagement in the educational process.
- We believe that using instructional technology to provide access to course materials enhances student’s ability to be self-directed and to assume responsibility for their progress towards graduation.
