JUVENILE HALL/CAMP RETURNEE PROGRAM
To ensure that all LAUSD students are enrolled, attending, engaged, and on-track to graduate.Program Description
The Camp Returnee Program is a specialized program of LAUSD’s Pupil Services Unit dedicated to enhancing the educational outcomes of our probation students returning from juvenile detention centers. Our goals are to provide early intervention, advocate for student rights, appropriate school placement, timely enrollment, and dropout prevention. We collaborate with probation, the camps (LACOE), our schools, and other agencies to help ensure the student and family receive the services they need to support a successful transition from camp to school to community.
