    Juvenile Justice Alternative Education Program (JJAEP)

            In 1996, the Texas Legislature mandated that juvenile boards in counties with populations greater than 125,000 operate Juvenile Justice Alternative Education Programs (JJAEPs). The JJAEP provides services to youth who were expelled from public schools for serious school-related law violations as well as provides an alternative site for students referred for violations of the Student Code of Conduct while placed in District Alternative Education Programs.

            The JJAEP is operated by the Tarrant County Juvenile Services department and provides academic, behavioral, therapeutic and support services to assist youth who are expelled from public schools. The program also offers training and support to families in the areas of communication skills, problem solving, conflict resolution, daily living skills and other issues to aid youth to be more successful in educational activities. Students assigned to JJAEP are required to meet minimum lengths of stay and successfully achieve "merit" status in order to transition back to their home school campuses.
