JCCS Special Education Program

​The Juvenile Court and Community Schools (JCCS) Special Education Program is administered by the Student Services and Programs Division of the San Diego County Office of Education. The procedural safeguards of Individuals with Disabilities Educational Improvement Act of 2004 apply to students who come under the jurisdiction of the juvenile justice system. The program serves students with disabilities attending school while being detained in juvenile facilities, on probation, or under the jurisdiction of the Health and Human Services Agency. 

The JCCS Special Education Program provides identification, assessment, and instruction to students with disabilities in accordance with state and federal laws and regulations governing special education. Services are provided year-round based on 246 school days. Students may enter and exit the program at anytime during the year. Due to the nature of these programs, the daily pupil count varies depending on the number of court-ordered placements.
