Secure Facilities

The transition to utilizing technology during school closures has been amazing for the Juvenile Detention Center! The students, teachers, and agency staff have worked together to accommodate each other while adapting to new measures of teaching and learning.
The agency staff sees to it that students are in class and working diligently as teachers virtually teach using video and audio lessons as well as packets. The lead teacher, teachers, and the staffing specialist are collaborating with each other and the agency to ensure students’ education needs are met, and as a result, students are happy to hear from teachers, teachers are happy to speak with students, and students are working and completing assignments.
This transition has opened doors for ways we, at the Juvenile Detention Center, can teach in the future when things move to the new normal, and it has had a positive impact on teamwork!
