• Center for Juvenile Detention School Services
     
    JDC staff NEWESD 101 has the responsibility of operating three educational programs within Spokane County.
     
    Two of the programs serve youth sentenced to maximum security juvenile detention centers: Spokane County Juvenile Detention Center and Martin Hall Detention Center.
     
    The third program involves youth placed on electronic monitoring and students who are court ordered to attend an alternative school setting. This program is known as the Structured Alternative Confinement (SAC) School.
     
    The three programs are operated by a team of dedicated professional educators (photo); all highly experienced in juvenile detention settings.
     
    Mission statement: We believe education is a partnership among students, school employees, family, and community. Our goals are to foster lifelong learning and promote achievement, responsibility, motivation, and self-esteem in a safe and positive environment.

    The following links describe each program and its goals.

    The Structured Alternative Confinement (SAC) program began in the fall of 1995 as an additional, more immediate, and less costly sentencing alternative option for juveniles who had committed crimes. There are three primary components to the program: electronic monitoring, day school and community service. Instruction is individualized for each student and a mastery level approach is used. Students are assessed upon entering the program and specific areas of strengths and improvements are identified. Students earn seat time hours which are then transferred to the appropriate districts for credit. The SAC program allows an option for identified youth who have no school placement within the juvenile court system. A primary objective is to successfully transition students back into the traditional school setting at the end of their court sentence. The school component is staffed by three teachers, a paraeducator, and a Education Advocate.  The program offers a general education curriculum, GED prep. and a school-to-work curriculum.  The SAC School operates 220 days a year.

    Martin Hall Juvenile Detention Center began operation in October 1997 and houses up to 52 youth. It is collectively operated by nine counties: Adams, Asotin, Douglas, Ferry, Lincoln, Pend Oreille, Spokane, Stevens, and Whitman. The goal of the educational program is to increase basic skills through an individualized approach. Keeping the youth both connected and current with their school is a major focus. Concurrently, Martin Hall challenges students to evaluate life choices. Case managers work in the school setting to assess each youth and provide necessary services such as AIDS/STD awareness, drug and alcohol counseling, sex offender counseling, anger management and job skills.

    Mission Statement

    The purpose of the Juvenile Detention School Programs is to provide pre-adjudicated and adjudicated students with a well-rounded educational program. Students, though enrolled in our school for a relatively short period of time, are given a chance to increase their knowledge and skills in basic education subjects. Opportunities are also provided for students to develop positive attitudes toward learning. Ideally, the skills and attitudes learned at our school will enhance the students' chances for success when they return to their school and to the community.
     
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Philosophy

    Our philosophy is success for all students and staff. Students participating in our school program will learn and demonstrate the following:
     
    1. Confidence as a learner and a person.
    2. Self-direction as a learner.
    3. Concern and respect for others.
    4. Comprehension and application of knowledge.
    5. Higher level thinking skills in the areas of problem solving, decision making and critical 
     
        thinking skills.
    6. Effective communication skills.
     
    Our school's curriculum is aligned with the Washington Student Learning Goals and is currently being realigned with the Common Core State Standards and Marzano Learning Framework. A present goal is to increase vocational education and to implement a new curriculum piece involving Restorative Justice, which provides a new way of thinking about crime and criminal justice (i.e., interaction with visiting judges in our classrooms and lessons on changing criminal behavior).  Pre-vocational education and successful transition back to local schools and the community is a major focus.
