Student Support Programs
The Court Schools receive multiple sources of funding in order to support San Francisco most at-risk students. Along with generous funding from the SFUSD General Fund, the Court Schools budget consists of funds generated by our Title I grant, Consent Decree, Prop H and the Discretionary Block Grant. Each of these funding sources helps provide vital programs and services for students, which include additional classroom staff, a youth transition specialist, and much needed classroom materials. Through additional categorical funds, plans for onsite City College Emergency Medical Technician training is being explored for specific school site programs in the spring of 2008.
With the exception of the Principals' Center Collaborative and Walden House, all court school facilities are operated by the Juvenile Probation Department, which includes Juvenile Hall, Log Cabin Ranch, and the early Morning Study Program. Each of these facilities has or will be upgraded in the near future. For example, a Juvenile Hall facility was completed in January 2007 and capital improvements will begin at Log Cabin Ranch in the coming year. In terms of SFUSD facilities, the Principals' Center Collaborative is continuously undergoing site improvements to better serve the school community. Some of the recent improvements include a new blacktop and sports yard as well as new weather protection on all classroom portables.
The SFUSD Court Schools in partnership with the Juvenile Probation revises its safety each year commensurate with current staffing and building conditions. Continuous improvements occur with this issue with assistance from SFUSD and the Juvenile Probation Department to ensure that the buildings remain safe for students, staff, and visitors. Evacuation and emergency plans are available at each school site.
