At Risk

(209) 468.4960 • Staff Directory

The San Joaquin County Office of Education provides services to address the needs of youth involved in the juvenile justice system and youth at-risk of juvenile justice attending the County Operated Schools Program and San Joaquin County school districts. Best practices approaches serve as common threads to counseling and therapy services while crafting individual case plans to meet the unique needs of at-risk and/or juvenile justice involved students. A two-tiered approach is used to support students. Probation Assistants and school counselors work collectively to identify students and serve as a nexus for support and encouragement. Using the Asset Development Model, they serve as positive, caring adult role models; the number one predictor of positive student/school connectedness. Students with more intensive mental health needs will be bridged through counselors, probation assistants, teachers or school nurses to licensed clinicians who provide therapeutic services.
