Juvenile Justice

New Haven / Fairfield County
Principal, Charles Rosenthal 203-376-6652

Children's Community Programs Schools, in partnership with host social services agencies Youth Continuum and Partners in Community, provide quality education services for children placed by the Court Support Services Division (CSSD) of Juvenile Matters who are considered "state agency placements" under Connecticut General Statutes Section 10-186. The programs are juvenile alternative sanction programs established by the General Assembly in 1995 to provide seven-day-per-week services and supervision to juveniles who would otherwise be incarcerated in a detention center or placed out of the community. The programs enroll male and female clients between the ages of 10 and 16.

The schools are designed to educate students within safe and supportive environments and to facilitate a successful return to the mainstream environment upon completion of their judicial mandates. The Community School curriculum is created individually by way of in-dept student profile assessments and, if necessary, specific modifications to the sending school district's general curriculum. Core curriculum offerings include math, English/language arts, social studies, science, health and physical education, as well as artistic expression and computer technology. The student/teacher ratio is maintained at approximately 10:1., with additional support services of educational counselors, social workers, and other related service providers as needed. A special education teacher is employed at each location to ensure that the Individual Education Programs (IEP) are appropriately implemented.

Currently, we are providing educational services in New Haven County and in Fairfield County. The programs are regionalized and, therefore, provide services for specific judicial districts.

Great Hill Regional Academy

Principal: Linda Kapitan

Great Hill Regional Academy is a regional special education and alternate education program serving students and their families living in the Naugatuck Valley region. Specialized services are provided for adolescents with social, emotional, behavioral and learning difficulties.

Our close proximity to the sending public schools enables The Great Hill Regional Academy to transition students back to mainstream education environments with ease.

Great Hill Regional Academy believes that in order to provide the best possible education and treatment services for its students, a partnership between the program staff, parents, students, and school district must be established. Through partnership, each student can maximize his/her ability to accomplish individual goals and succeed at learning.

The educational component provides accredited academic instruction in all of the core subject areas: math, science/health, social studies/history and English, as well as vocational education, physical education, life skills education and computer skills education. Students are also encouraged to engage in therapeutic recreation and vocational placements within the community.

The clinical component offers individual and group counseling, family counseling, psychiatric consultations and substance abuse education, depending upon the particular student's needs and his/her I.E.P. (Individual Educational Program). Parents too are encouraged to attend a monthly "parent support group," which meets at the school in the evenings.

Specialized educational services are provided for elementary students (grades 1-6) middle school students (grades 7-8) and high school (grades 9-12) students with severe emotional, behavioral and learning difficulties.

Pathways Regional believes that in order to provide the best possible educational services to its students, a partnership between the school, the students, the families and the school district must be established. This collaborative model enables the school to provide direct access to the general curriculum, specialized programming (partial mainstreaming and graduated transition back to the student's home school), school lunch provisions, credited coursework involving community and vocational placements, and collaborations with local social service agencies.

The educational component provides accredited academic instruction in all of the core subject areas: math, science/health, social studies/history and English, as well as vocational education, physical education, life skills education and computer skills education. Students are also encouraged to engage in therapeutic recreation and vocational placements within the community.

The clinical component offers individual and group counseling, family counseling, psychiatric consultations and substance abuse education, depending upon the particular student's needs and his/her I.E.P.

203-380-9618
Principal: Barbara Feldman

The New School is a special education program serving children and families from Stratford and the Housatonic "Valley" Region. Specialized educational services are provided for elementary students (grades 4-6) middle school students (grades 7-8) and high school (grades 9-10) students with severe language and learning difficulties.

The New School program philosophy emphasizes that to provide the best possible educational services to its students, a partnership between the school, the students, the families and the school district must be established. This collaborative model enables the school to provide direct access to the general curriculum, specialized programming (partial mainstreaming and graduated transition back to the student's home school), school lunch provisions, and collaborations with local social service agencies. The program has been a huge success in mainstreaming students back to their public schools.

Within a safe and nurturing environment, the program utilizes an intense sequential reading system and a multi-sensory approach to advance the development of reading skills, while fostering a renewed appreciation of the language arts. Each student's program is completely individualized in order to maximize strengths and explicitly address weaknesses.

In addition to the reading concentration, the educational component provides accredited academic instruction in all of the other core subject areas: math, science/health, social studies and English, as well as physical education and computer skills education. For those students who require additional supports, speech and language as well as counseling services are provided by the Stratford School District.
.
The school is regionalized and, therefore, provides specialized educational services for students from Stratford, Shelton, Ansonia, Derby, Seymour, Oxford, Naugatuck, Prospect and Beacon Falls.
