Public comment on any matter within the subject matter jurisdiction of the Juvenile Probation Commission

Rich Perino expressed the concerns of the POA for some of the principles and/or processes of the JDAI, saying it was taking up precious scarce resources in the Dept, and asked for the opportunity to present their case to the Commission.
Vicky Riga, photography teacher at LCRS, expressed her concerns for how the courts are dealing with LCRS; not being deliberative about the types of youth that will be referred there. She especially felt endangered by those who would have serious emotional and behavioral issues. The SFUSD program’s principal is only there once a month, they have no special ed or ESL instructors there, the psych is there only once a week.  She asked what could be done to “standardize” a type of youth that was appropriate for the ranch, and she asked what the Mayor’s “blue ribbon committee” was intending to do.
