Juvenile Services Education Programs Management and Operations Workgroup (HB 1607)

House Bill 1607 established the Juvenile Services Education County Pilot Program to pilot a management model where a juvenile services education program at a facility located in a county is operated by the county board of education. The bill requires that the Program begin in the 2019-2020 school year; requires the State Department of Education to identify one juvenile services education program to participate in the Program; and requires a work group be established to make recommendations on the management and operation of juvenile services education programs.

The work group will begin meeting on January 28 and will continue meeting on a monthly basis until November 18.
