Juvenile Court and Community Schools

Juvenile Court and Community Schools (JCCS) offers alternative educational services for students in grades 7-12. There are three court and community schools, the Division of Unaccompanied Children's Services (DUCS) School and two Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) accredited schools, the Golden Hills Community School (GHCS) and the Solano County Juvenile Detention Facility (JDF) School.

The GHCS is located at the Golden Hills Education Center, 2460 Clay Bank Road, Fairfield. Students who attend this school have been referred by the Fairfield-Suisun Unified School District due to an expulsion, probation placement, or attendance problems. Our students work on a standards-based curriculum and have the opportunity to recover missed credits. The program is designed to support progress toward graduation and offers diplomas for students who complete the school's requirements.

The JDF school serves youth housed at the Solano County JDF located at 740 Beck Avenue, Fairfield. Students at the facility have access to a curriculum that includes standards-based texts in all four core subject areas. Credit recovery is a key component because many students enter the program with a lack of credits. Students can graduate with a high school diploma.

The DUCS is a community school that serves undocumented youth. Students attend English Language Development classes and work on credit recovery via the Odysseyware Program. They also work in the core subject areas that will assist them as they work toward graduation.

The Distance Learning Program is located at the Golden Hills Education Center, 2460 Clay Bank Road, in Fairfield. Students work with a Web-based curriculum, Odysseyware, and meet with a teacher on a weekly basis. This program is focused on credit recovery and addresses the academic needs of students who are working toward achieving a high school diploma. The Distance Learning Program is open to students from all school districts in Solano County.
