Court and Community Schools

THE PROGRAM
Mt. McKinley School at Juvenile Hall is one of two Court School Programs operated by the Contra Costa County Office of Education. It is located in the Juvenile Hall facility in Martinez.

THE STUDENTS
Students at Mt. McKinley take grade-appropriate academic courses and work on their basic skills to complete appropriate courses or earn high school credits. It is a General Education Development (GED) Test Center and the test is administered to eligible students each month. This school is WASC (Western Association of Schools and Colleges) accredited.

Each student entering the program spends three days in the Assessment Center. There, a comprehensive diagnosis of academic skills, career interests and learning styles is completed. Significant behavioral issued are also identified, and students are oriented to the facility, its operation, and program expectations. School / Probation orientation is also provided during this assessment class. In order to ensure a more successful transition to the main program, students are expected to remain in this class until all assessments have been completed, and appropriate behaviors have been consistently demonstrated. All students leave the Assessment Center with an Individualized Learning Plan (ILP).

All classes at Mt. McKinley School are part of a modified block schedule with 90-minute periods. Some students remain in one class for all subjects; others rotate through classes in which they see three teachers daily. The rotational classes include: Language Arts/Social Studies; Mathematics/ Science; and Health/Physical Education.

Students housed in some units study in a classroom within the living unit. Girls attend a separate class, with curriculum targeted to their special needs. Students who have a history of substance abuse are assigned to the Adolescent Counseling Education (ACE) class. Older boys who qualify are assigned to the School-to-Career class, which emphasizes high school completion, GED preparation, and employability skills.

THE TEACHERS
All teachers are certified, and the curriculum is aligned with the California State Frameworks. Lessons are designed to accommodate classrooms diverse in ability and learning styles. Technology is highly valued and all students have access to computers. This program also helps students develop pro-social behaviors and life skills.

The school staff members at Mt. McKinley are dedicated to the belief that education is a very powerful tool, which opens doors of opportunity for those who embrace it. It is both a challenge, as well as a meaningful opportunity, to work with troubled youth to increase their skills, promote positive changes in their behavior and prepare them for a successful future.
