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.
