Juvenile Court and Community Schools/Alternative Education
The CARE (Community Action for Responsive Education) Intervention Program is a Community School program serving seventh through ninth grade students in Sacramento County. The program—a partnership between the Sacramento County Office of Education (SCOE) and Sacramento County Probation—aims to decrease the high school dropout rate and the number of students referred to juvenile probation.
CARE classes provide a small, self-contained setting with individual student attention as part of select school's intervention system. Students are included in the school’s elective and physical education courses, and can participate in extracurricular activities including athletics.
CARE teachers are hired, paid, and evaluated by SCOE. The program uses the school district's adopted curriculum and follows the course of study outlined by the districts. The district provides textbooks and any supplemental materials for the students in the program.
