4520 - JUVENILE ACADEMIC AND VOCATIONAL EDUCATION
The Education Services Branch of the Division of Juvenile Justice operates as a local education agency known as the California Education Authority. Its mission is to empower each student to become a civil, responsible, employable and knowledgeable lifelong learner. A key goal for education is to prepare students for successful transition to the community upon release.
The Juvenile Academic and Vocational Education programs are accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC), and include core academic and career/technical preparation high school courses, general education development preparation, basic skills enhancement, and college preparation. All students must meet the California Common Core State Standards and earn the appropriate amount of course credits in order to graduate. Supplemental services include special education, English learner services, Title I, Part D, basic skills enhancement, library services, character development courses, and high school credit work experience.
