The Humboldt County Office of Education provides unique educational programs operated within school settings throughout Humboldt County. Many students are wards of the court and are under the supervision of the community school probation officer.
The community school probation officer participates in the screening process for incoming students, provides crisis intervention both on campus and in students' homes and refers students to onsite counseling services. The probation officer is on each campus at least weekly and is involved with the students' families as well as with the students themselves.
The goal of school staff and the probation officer is to teach students personal responsibility and develop life skills to ensure a successful transition to their former schools of residence.
