It is the policy of the Juvenile Justice Center that every detention resident is enrolled in the school program. The educational component of detention is provided by the Dickinson Independent School District. The sole purpose of the detention school program is to allow students the opportunity to continue their education and receive credit for their work while being detained. When a juvenile is ordered by the court to be detained, school personnel will notify the home district and an educational plan will be maintained for the youth while in our care. Upon release, the home district will be notified and records information will be sent to the home district.
