   Burlington County Juvenile Detention Center Education Program


The Burlington County Juvenile Detention Center offers a year round educational program, which is comprised of five marking periods.  Report cards are issued in compliance with Juvenile Justice Commission regulations.  Students participate in all required state standardized tests (i.e.: NJASK, HSPA, NJ Biology, PARCC) and meet the requirements of the Core Curriculum Content Standards. 

Special education students meet the goals and objectives as outlined in their Individual Education Program (IEP).  If Child Study Team services are warranted, the services are coordinated with the Juvenile Justice Commission.  Students attend four classes per day.  Attendance and participation is mandatory.

The Education Department is equipped with three modern classrooms, an extensive educational video library, a large selection of reference material, desktop computers, Ebeam interactive technology, audio/visual aids, appropriate tests and educational resources.  In addition, a gymnasium is located in the main building.
