Summary:
The Juvenile Justice Alternative Education Program (JJAEP) serves all school districts in Tarrant County for expelled students either due to mandatory reasons (felony drug, illegal weapons as examples) per Chapter 37 or discretionary reasons due to serious and/or persistent misbehavior while placed at the Disciplinary Alternative Education Program (DAEP), also per Chapter 37. This MOU is for expelled students who reside within Tarrant County. There is also a MOU for Johnson County JJAEP for students who reside within the Crowley ISD community located within Johnson County. A student’s JJAEP placement is based upon the student’s residence.

The only changes in the MOU for the school year 2017-18 are a street address change for Tarrant County Juvenile Services on Page 3 and an increase in the state rate from $86.00 per day to $96.00, which is also located on Page 3 under “Reimbursement.” The school district rate remains the same as 2016-17.

Attached is the 2017-18 JJAEP (Tarrant County) Memorandum of Understanding for your review and consideration.
