Juvenile court schools provide an educational program that meets the needs of students who have been placed in juvenile halls, juvenile homes, day centers, ranches, camps, or regional youth education facilities. County boards of education administer and operate the juvenile court schools authorized by California Education Code (EC) sections 48645–48645.6. A minimum school day for Juvenile Court Schools is 240 minutes (EC Section 48645.3). Funding is provided by the state General Fund and is included in the annual apportionment to county offices of education.
