Juvenile Court Education Advocacy Program

The Fulton County Juvenile Court works to reduce recidivism and increase academic success with their Education Advocacy Program. This program works to ensure that juvenile justice system involved students received special education services. Specifically, the program works to ensure the services provided for them in the IDEA. In this program students are given an educational advocate to represent them in all school related infractions and aims to prevent expulsion from the public school system. Additionally, advocates work to overturn expulsions and assist in special needs cases for children who have been pressured into withdrawing from school.
