Educational Services

The Education Program Division oversees the educational services for all juveniles in custody at the Idaho Department of Juvenile Corrections, both at the state-operated institutions and with the contract providers. At each of the correctional centers, we work hard to meet the needs of the students and provide them a strong education. We work hard to support students as they achieve a high school diploma or a GED. After the student has received their diploma or their GED, students can earn workplace certificates, college credit, and work-based learning experience to provide our students skills for the future. While many of our students arrive with very few credits, they leave here on the path to meet their educational and career goals. Each center delivers instruction differently to meet the needs of their center’s program and meet the students’ needs. The staff of Idaho Department of Juvenile Corrections Schools believe that all students can learn and it is our goal for the students to become life-long learners.

Child Find

Idaho Department of Juvenile Corrections is responsible to locate, refer and identify all children who are suspected of having a disability and are enrolled in our school.

Do you suspect that your child might have a disability?

  • If a child is having significant difficulty with vision, hearing, speech, behavior, is experiencing slow development typical for his/her age, physical impairments, or learning difficulty, he/she may be a child with a disability. Identification and intervention is essential to help ensure school success.
  • If you need assistance please contact us here ( or 208-334-5100.
