Pinal County Secure Care


Pinal County Schools Secure Care Program

The educational program at the Youth Justice Center was developed in cooperation with the Juvenile Court System in 1993. The educational program offers young people, temporarily incarcerated at the Detention Center, the opportunity to continue the educational process begun in their home school districts. Through this program, the student detainees will also transition back into their home districts upon release from the Detention Center. Working in cooperation with regular and special education teachers, as well as counselors in the school districts,the Pinal County Secure Care Programs assist the student detainees to get back on track.
