Who provides educational services in the Youth Center?

The Washtenaw Intermediate School District is contracted to provide services for students at the Washtenaw County Youth Center. Students have six hours of class time per day. There are a maximum of ten students per class. We use Edgenuity, an online education tool, and direct instruction to assess and advance students' learning.

Aligned to the state of Michigan's policies and philosophy, we focus on mastery of content, rather than the time spent on tasks. This means, at times, we will test students out of material they know, and look for every opportunity to help their transition in and out of the facility and work to keep them or get them on track with school. We focus on what each student needs to learn and grow. For some, that might be work in a specific subject, for others it might be the school behaviors and habits to return to their school. If you have any questions about your student's plan, please do not hesitate to contact us.
