Your Rights With Families as Allies


Your Rights In The Juvenile Justice System


Your Rights In The Mental Health System


Your Rights At School


Your Rights In A Residential Treatment Center Or Hospital


You and your child have rights and protections in the systems you are likely to deal with.  These rights help your child have the chance to do the same things other children do.  They also help make sure that you have input into decisions about your child.

If you have trouble getting the information or help you need about any of these rights or if you have a meeting related to any of these rights, feel free to contact our office and we will be happy to help you.

You will also have the opportunity to share feedback about ways to make JPS work better for all students and families if you would like. The feedback will be shared with the Better Together Commission.
