Teen Learning Center
The Tipton County Teen Learning Center is a therapeutic day treatment program providing academic instruction, behavioral intervention, custody and truancy prevention services. The program serves behaviorally challenged youth whose social function in the regular and alternative school setting has been unsuccessful or who have appeared before the Juvenile Court. The Teen Learning Center program provides a 32.5 hour week state accredited educational program for youth ages 12-18 years of age. In addition to educational services, students receive counseling and other behavioral intervention services in efforts to prevent them from going into state custody.
Students are enrolled in the Tipton County Teen Learning Center based on referrals from the Juvenile Court. Students 12-17 years of age are placed in the Teen Learning Center through a valid court order as a result of behavioral issues or truancy. Students are placed for 200 days but can be released in 100 days if specific requirements for early release are met. In order to be released in 100 days, students must pass drug screenings, maintain a 2.0 grade average, have minimal minor discipline infractions, have good attendance and the parents must complete the required parenting class.
