RE:          Grayson County Department of Juvenile Services
             FY 2012 General Fund Budget

Dear Judge Bynum,

      On Wednesday, June 1, 2011 the members of the juvenile board met in
open session. Among the items to be considered was the contribution by the
Grayson County General Fund to the Grayson County Department of Juvenile
Services for Fiscal Year 2012. By a vote of __ FOR and __ AGAINST the Board
voted that the amount of the contribution from general revenues would equal
$______________.

      The Board was made aware of the possible revenue reductions that
Grayson County faces. It is our desire to continue open dialogue with you, as
budget officer, and the Commissioners Court, as we proceed through the FY
2012 budgeting process. We have authorized Bill Bristow, Director, to work with
you as well as the Commissioners Court on the FY 2012 contribution; however,
no modifications to the budget are authorized until the Board has adopted it in an
open meeting.

      Thank you for your attention to this matter.

                                         Respectfully,



                                         Rayburn “Rim” Nall

  343.288. Disciplinary Seclusion. (a) Disciplinary seclusion may be used when a resident commits a major rule violation or
  poses an imminent physical threat to self or others. (b) A written disciplinary report which describes the resident’s
  precipitating behavior and identifies the staff’s response shall be completed promptly, but no later than the end of the shift
  on which the seclusion occurs. The report shall be submitted immediately to the facility administrator for review. (c)
  Seclusion in excess of 24 hours shall be approved in writing by the facility administrator. The written approval of the
  facility administrator shall also be required for each subsequent 24-hour extension. (d) The seclusion of a resident with a
  known diagnosis of a serious mental illness requires consultation with a mental health professional prior to the
  authorization of any seclusion beyond a 24-hour period. If the seclusion occurs on a holiday or weekend and no mental
  health professional is available, the facility administrator or designee shall make a referral to a mental health professional
  and notify the mental health professional of the seclusion. The facility administrator shall consult with the mental health
  professional as soon as possible after the referral. (e) During disciplinary seclusion, a juvenile supervision officer shall
  personally observe and record the resident’s behavior at random intervals not to exceed 15 minutes. (f) In addition to the

  requirements enumerated in subsections (a) - (c) and (e) of this section, the facility shall provide the secluded resident
  the disciplinary review mechanisms contained in §343.278 of this chapter.
  Findings:
  TJPC staff reviewed the incident report and corresponding observation log(s) for all disciplinary seclusions during the
  randomly selected time period of 11/20/10 through 11/26/10 to determine compliance with this standard. All 7 files
  reviewed were determined to be in compliance with this standard.

  During the review of the resident discipline reviews and appeals, TJPC staff determined that the facility administration did
  not appove 3 seclusions that exceeded 24 hours.

  343.302. Menu Plans. (a) The facility shall develop and follow daily written menu plans. Menu plans shall be reviewed
  and approved at least every 365 calendar days by a licensed or provisionally licensed dietician to ensure that the menu
  plans meet or exceed the requirements of the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA). (b) If a facility staff
  determines that there is a legitimate need to deviate from an already approved written menu plan (e.g., delayed food
  delivery, spoiled/expired food, etc.), the reason for the deviation and menu substitution shall be fully documented. When
  menu substitutions are made, the substitution shall be of equal portions and nutritional value.
  Findings:
  TJPC staff reviewed the documentation of the review and approval, dated 05/06/11, of the menu plan by licensed
  Dietition, Priscilla Gonner, Phd, RD, LD. The previous menu plan was completed 04/28/10, which elapsed the 365 day
  requirement.

  TJPC staff also reviewed documentation of menu plan deviations and determined the documentation was maintained in
  accordance with the requirements of this standard.
  In addition, during the tour of the facility, TJPC staff verified that the meal being provided conformed to the facility's menu
  plan. Lastly, TJPC staff interviewed 4 residents and determined that the menu plan is being followed.

  343.340. Suicide Prevention Plan. (a) Plan. The facility shall have a written suicide prevention plan developed in
  consultation with a mental health professional that, at a minimum, addresses the following components: (1) definitions of
  moderate and high risk for suicidal behavior; (2) a screening methodology to assess and assign a resident's risk of
  suicide upon admission into the facility, and upon any indication a resident previously screened may now be at moderate
  or high risk for suicidal behavior. The screening methodology shall include specific provisions regarding the assessment
  of risk when a resident refuses or is unable to cooperate with the screening process; (3) communication protocols among
  facility staff, mental health professionals, the resident's juvenile probation officer, the resident and the resident's parent,
  legal guardian, or custodian, including communication regarding observations or indications a resident previously
  screened may now be at moderate or high risk for suicidal behavior; (4) level of supervision for residents assigned to

  moderate or high risk for suicidal behavior; (5) policies and procedures for intervening in suicide attempts; (6) reporting of
  resident suicides and attempted suicides, in accordance with any applicable state law, administrative standard, or local
  policy or ordinance; (7) staff training on the contents and implementation of the suicide prevention plan; (8) housing of
  residents assigned to moderate or high risk for suicidal behavior, including the removal from the resident's presence any
  dangerous objects which may include clothing and bedding items; and (9) mortality reviews designed to review the
  facility's compliance and possible needed revisions to the suicide prevention plan following a resident's suicide. (b)
  Implementation. The facility shall implement the suicide prevention plan, and all residents shall be screened and
  assessed for suicide risk upon admission and as necessary thereafter.
  Findings:
  TJPC staff reviewed the documentation of the mental health professional's (Sylvia Cave, LCSW Director, MHMR)
  consultation in the development of the facility's suicide prevention plan and determined it was in compliance with this
  standard requirement.

  TJPC staff also reviewed the facility's suicide prevention plan and determined the plan does not address the reporting of
  resident suicides and attempted suicides, in accordance with any applicable state law, administrative standard, or local
  policy or ordinance. TAC 358 procedures require the reporting of resident suicides/deaths to the TJPC within 4 hours and
  local law enforcement notification within 1 hour.

  Technical Assistance:

  The CRM discussion narrative requires that the "facility's plan shall minimally identify the person or position (person or
  position need not be a facility staff member) that is responsible for leading the mortality review...". In reviewing the
  facility's Suicide Prevention Plan, one could reasonably assume the Director of Juvenile Services would lead the mortality
  team review, but this would be an assumption since the Plan does not specify this provision as required in the CRM
  discussion narrative. The TJPC recommends the facility modify the Mortality Review Team portion of the Suicide
  Prevention Plan to include this designation
  Transaction Details:
  May 19 2011 9:26AM Pending Review
  Waiver Requested: The facility is out of compliance due to a conflict between the standards of TJPC and the
  professionals who from our local MHMR that review and implement suicide prevention plans.

  343.270. Clothing. (d) A resident on suicide supervision status may have their clothing requirements modified per the
  facility’s suicide prevention plan in §343.340 of this chapter. However, in no case, shall residents on suicide supervision
  be left in an unnecessary state of undress.
  Findings:
  TJPC staff reviewed the facility's suicide prevention and determined it addressed clothing modification requirements.

  In addition, TJPC staff interviewed 4 residents and 2 juvenile supervision officers to determine the facility's procedures for
  substituting clothing. During the interviews, both juvenile supervision officers and 2 residents reported that residents
  placed on an elevated suicide-risk status participate in regular programming while wearing protective clothing (i.e., safety
  smock). TJPC staff subsequently spoke to Chief Juvenile Probation Officer (CJPO) Bill Bristow who confirmed this
  practice. As stated in this standard's Compliance Resource Manual commentary, "Residents having an elevated suicide-
  risk status shall not be required to wear overtly obvious protective clothing (e.g., safety smocks, paper gowns, quilted
  vests, etc.) while they are participating in group activities, in regular programming, or when assigned to a multiple

  343.288. Disciplinary Seclusion. (a) Disciplinary seclusion may be used when a resident commits a major rule violation or
  poses an imminent physical threat to self or others. (b) A written disciplinary report which describes the resident’s
  precipitating behavior and identifies the staff’s response shall be completed promptly, but no later than the end of the shift
  on which the seclusion occurs. The report shall be submitted immediately to the facility administrator for review. (c)
  Seclusion in excess of 24 hours shall be approved in writing by the facility administrator. The written approval of the
  facility administrator shall also be required for each subsequent 24-hour extension. (d) The seclusion of a resident with a
  known diagnosis of a serious mental illness requires consultation with a mental health professional prior to the
  authorization of any seclusion beyond a 24-hour period. If the seclusion occurs on a holiday or weekend and no mental
  health professional is available, the facility administrator or designee shall make a referral to a mental health professional
  and notify the mental health professional of the seclusion. The facility administrator shall consult with the mental health
  professional as soon as possible after the referral. (e) During disciplinary seclusion, a juvenile supervision officer shall
  personally observe and record the resident’s behavior at random intervals not to exceed 15 minutes. (f) In addition to the
  requirements enumerated in subsections (a) - (c) and (e) of this section, the facility shall provide the secluded resident
  the disciplinary review mechanisms contained in §343.278 of this chapter.
  Findings:
  TJPC staff reviewed the incident report and corresponding observation logs for all disciplinary seclusions during the
  randomly selected time period of 11/1/10 through 11/7/10 to determine compliance with this standard. TJPC staff
  determined 8 out of the 11 files reviewed were determined to be in compliance with this standard. The following non-

  343.340. Suicide Prevention Plan. (a) Plan. The facility shall have a written suicide prevention plan developed in
  consultation with a mental health professional that, at a minimum, addresses the following components: (1) definitions of
  moderate and high risk for suicidal behavior; (2) a screening methodology to assess and assign a resident's risk of
  suicide upon admission into the facility, and upon any indication a resident previously screened may now be at moderate
  or high risk for suicidal behavior. The screening methodology shall include specific provisions regarding the assessment
  of risk when a resident refuses or is unable to cooperate with the screening process; (3) communication protocols among
  facility staff, mental health professionals, the resident's juvenile probation officer, the resident and the resident's parent,
  legal guardian, or custodian, including communication regarding observations or indications a resident previously
  screened may now be at moderate or high risk for suicidal behavior; (4) level of supervision for residents assigned to
  moderate or high risk for suicidal behavior; (5) policies and procedures for intervening in suicide attempts; (6) reporting of
  resident suicides and attempted suicides, in accordance with any applicable state law, administrative standard, or local
  policy or ordinance; (7) staff training on the contents and implementation of the suicide prevention plan; (8) housing of
  residents assigned to moderate or high risk for suicidal behavior, including the removal from the resident's presence any
  dangerous objects which may include clothing and bedding items; and (9) mortality reviews designed to review the
  facility's compliance and possible needed revisions to the suicide prevention plan following a resident's suicide. (b)
  Implementation. The facility shall implement the suicide prevention plan, and all residents shall be screened and
  assessed for suicide risk upon admission and as necessary thereafter.
  Findings:
  TJPC staff reviewed the documentation of the mental health professional's (Sylvia Cave, LCSW Director, MHMR)
  consultation in the development of the facility's suicide prevention plan and determined it was in compliance with this
  standard requirement.

  TJPC staff also reviewed the facility's suicide prevention plan and determined the plan does not address the reporting of
  resident suicides and attempted suicides, in accordance with any applicable state law, administrative standard, or local
  policy or ordinance. TAC 358 procedures require the reporting of resident suicides/deaths to the TJPC within 4 hours and
  local law enforcement notification within 1 hour.

  Technical Assistance:

  The CRM discussion narrative requires that the "facility's plan shall minimally identify the person or position (person or
  position need not be a facility staff member) that is responsible for leading the mortality review...". In reviewing the
  facility's Suicide Prevention Plan, one could reasonably assume the Director of Juvenile Services would lead the mortality
  team review, but this would be an assumption since the Plan does not specify this provision as required in the CRM
  discussion narrative. The TJPC recommends the facility modify the Mortality Review Team portion of the Suicide
  Prevention Plan to include this designation.

  Additionally, the TJPC recommends the facility modify the current Plan and imbed form references (e.g., Suicide Watch
  Checklist, Scanning Sheet, etc.) within each applicable section of the Plan.

  informal disciplinary review which includes an overview of the facility’s formal disciplinary review process. If the 24th hour
  of seclusion occurs during non-program hours, then the informal review shall be conducted no later than two hours after
  the start of ensuing day’s program hour schedule. (2) A resident assigned to an extended period of seclusion beyond 24
  hours shall have a formal disciplinary review no later than his or her 72nd hour of seclusion per §343.280 of this chapter.
  If the 72nd hour of seclusion occurs during non-program hours, then the formal disciplinary review shall be conducted no

                                  Memorandum of Understanding for
                                  Juvenile Justice Education Program
                                      For 2011-12 School Terms

        This Agreement is entered into by, between and among the Juvenile Board of Grayson County
and the Sherman Independent School District;

        WHEREAS, the Juvenile Board of Grayson County and the Sherman Independent School District
are “local governments” and public education in the context contemplated herein as a governmental
function and service; and

        WHEREAS, any local government may contract or agree with another local government in to
perform governmental functions and services that each party to the contract is authorized to perform
individually; and

        WHEREAS, Section 37.011 of the Texas Education Code as rewritten and adopted in 1997
allows the development of a “juvenile justice alternative education program” by the juvenile board of a
county and local independent school districts.

        WHEREAS, the parties known as the Juvenile Board of Grayson County and the Sherman
Independent School district agree to provide educational services to the children and youth assigned to the
juvenile justice educational program; and

       The Grayson County Department of Juvenile Services has developed a safe and secure
environment for incarcerated children and youth with a highly intensive and regimented program that
emphasizes education, discipline, physical fitness, social responsibility and productive work; and

        An instructional program of education based on the core content of Language Arts, Mathematics,
Social Studies and Science with the curriculum framework of the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills
(TEKS) will be delivered by Sherman ISD professional teachers and staff certified by the Texas State
Board of Educator Certification (SBEC).

       NOW, THEREFORE, pursuant to the Texas Education Code, it is mutually agreed by, between
and among the parties as follows:

I.      The Sherman Independent School District is designated as the sites of the campus of the juvenile
        justice education program known as the “Boot Camp” and the “Tri-County Juvenile Detention
        Center” and shall provide administration of the education aspects of the campus and serve as the
        providers of professional staff and educational resources to deliver a basic program of educational
        services that addresses the core curriculum of Language Arts, Mathematics, Social Studies and
        Science.
II.     The Sherman Independent School District agrees to provide for the staff salaries and related
        benefits based on the Sherman ISD pay scale from their federal and state program funds for at-
        risk students.
III.    The Sherman Independent School District agrees to maintain all educational records, including
        attendance and reporting, applicable to the program and shall provide necessary curriculum and
        assessment normally associated with the provision of educational services.
IV.     Nothing herein shall burden the Sherman Independent School District with the responsibility for
        providing educational services beyond the normal school day and/or year, including summer
        school or after-hours tutoring. (Summer school and after-hours tutoring are contingent upon
        available funding from the Grayson County Juvenile Board.)
V.      The Sherman Independent School District shall prepare a budget of operational and maintenance
        costs for educational services that include the fringe benefits commensurate with the fringe
        benefits enjoyed by comparable professional employees of the Sherman ISD. The budget may be
        amended during the school year with written concurrence of the parties.
VI.     All ADA funding entitlement generated from the date of each student’s enrollment in the
        educational program shall remain with the Sherman Independent School District.
VII.    Sherman Independent School District reserves the right to reduce any and all educational
        expenditures necessary, including staff, in the event that funding generated from ADA does not
        adequately support the educational services provided to Tri-County JDC or the Boot Camp.
VIII.   The Grayson County Juvenile Services Board will provide the facility, maintenance and
        operations, food and clothing costs, security and other related costs not directly related to
        educational services.
IX.     The Sherman Independent School District will provide all educationally-related furniture,
        instructional resources and supplies, network wiring, technical support, and all other computer
        and networking operations. Sherman ISD technology equipment falls under Sherman ISD
        Acceptable Use Policy for computer and internet operations.
X.      The Grayson County Juvenile Services Board will provide the funding for educational services
        beyond the normal school day or year, which may be supplemented with their proportionate share
        of Title I funding for summer school from the Sherman ISD.
XI.     The term of this agreement shall be for the 2011-12 school year according to the calendar of the
        Sherman Independent School District, renewable thereafter on a year-to-year basis by written
        consent of all participating school districts.
