Clayton County Juvenile Court
System of Care (SOC)
Partnering for positive futures for Clayton County children and families
The Clayton County Juvenile Court partners with local schools and law enforcement to find ways of disciplining young people while keeping them in school and out of the juvenile justice system. Since 2004, the School Referral Reduction Protocol, led by Judge Steven Teske, has reduced school arrests by 83 percent and gained national attention as a promising model.
