Lorain County Juvenile Court Residential Facilities Education Programs
The purpose of our Education Program is to ensure the highest level of learning we can provide for all students.
Students are placed in the education program in Detention Home, Stepping Stone/Pathways or Turning Point upon facility-intake by juvenile authorities or a responsible Lorain County agency. Attending school is a required activity every week-day; 5½ hours of direct-instruction is given daily to each resident by a licensed, HQT education professional. If the School of Residence or School of Enrollment wishes to send or pick-up school-work for the resident, this can easily be accommodated by our teachers.
Otherwise, an Ohio Academic Standards-focused curriculum in Language Arts, Math, Science, Social Studies & Technology is followed by our teachers with the goal that each resident will experience gains in grade-level achievement while in residence. Transcripts are sent to the student’s School of Residence
or School of Enrollment
Guidance Office upon release so that a smooth transition is achieved and academic credit earned in our teaching facilities is accepted. read more
