What is Marvin W. Foote Youth Services Center
Cherry Creek School District operates a year-round educational program at the Marvin W. Foote Youth Services Center.  This program is designed to meet the educational and affective needs of youth, who are preajudicated youth awaiting disposition on their charges.  The ages of these youngsters range between ten to eighteen years of age.
The Education Program is in operation 216 days per year.  Only preadjudicated youth, inmates only charged with an offense, are taught by the Cherry Creek School District staff.  Cherry Creek School District is required by The Colorado Children's Code, 19-2-402, which dictates to school districts in which detention centers are located, to provide this educational program.  These youth have been detained at the Marvin W. Foote Youth Services Center, which is a maximum-security facility, for alleged crimes, and they are awaiting a court appearance.  During the time of their incarceration, these youthful offenders must participate in the school program.  The school population averages between sixty and eighty students.  The composition of the classes is determined by "pod" assignments.  A "pod" is a location within the facility where the students live during their incarceration.  The "pod" to which an individual is assigned is determined by the crime that they are accused of committing and their risk to the maintenance of the safety and security of the facility.  Teachers differentiate the instruction of the curriculum to accommodate the students, i.e., fundamentals in reading, writing, math, social studies, science, affective education, special education and computer training.  These classes are the curricular components of the school.  The teachers are well aware of performance levels of students - each student is tested within 7 school days and results are made known to teachers.  Students do not have a choice about attending school.   It is a required program during their incarceration.
Mission Statement
In partnership with the Division of Youth Corrections and our community, to enlighten and provide comprehensive educational programming for our incarcerated youth in a safe and secure environment.
