The Florida Department of Education (FDOE) has issued the 2021-22 Department of Juvenile Justice (DJJ) Accountability Ratings. Miami-Dade County Public Schools (M-DCPS) currently has four DJJ sites that provide educational support to students. The DJJ sites are AMIkids Miami-Dade South, AMIkids Miami-Dade North, Miami Youth Academy, and PACE Center for Girls, Inc. For the first time, 100% of M-DCPS DJJ sites have received the highest possible rating of "Commendable."
The highest possible rating for all M-DCPS DJJ programs is an outstanding achievement for our students and also represents how well each program serves its students.
The FDOE calculates DJJ Accountability Ratings annually based on up to 12 components, including mathematics and English language arts (ELA) learning gains on statewide standardized assessments, mathematics and ELA learning gains on the Common Assessment, data integrity, graduation, grade advancement, qualified teachers, attendance, industry certifications, employment and postsecondary outcomes (Programs are graded only on the measures for which they have sufficient data).
