Body
DISCUSSION / BACKGROUND
The Madera County Correctional Academy began operation in 1997. The Academy utilizes a combination of structure, discipline, physical conditioning, and accountability in a nurturing approach in order to emphasize self-control and improve self-esteem.

The Probation Department has chosen the Madera County Correctional Academy as a program available to the Juvenile Court and has contracted with them since December 6, 2011.

The Juvenile Court determines on an “as needed” basis when and where youth will be committed for long-term confinement and treatment.

The County of Madera requires their Board of Supervisors to sign last on this Agreement. El Dorado County Probation respectfully requests the El Dorado County Board of Supervisors to allow the Chair to sign this Agreement prior to Madera County.
