Angela Bess, Ed.D., manager of the District’s Court Education Liaison Program, has been appointed to serve on the Steering Committee on Families and Children in the Court (FCC), a state-wide committee established by administrative order, impacting youth and families involved with the Florida Department of Juvenile Justice. The appointment letter stresses that the primary charge of committee members centers around the development of promising practices designed to help ensure that children involved in dependency and delinquency court cases stay in school with diminished likelihood of arrest, suspensions, or expulsions.
The Committee on Families and Children in Court was created in 1994. Dr. Bess will be welcomed in person by Florida Supreme Court Justice Barbara Pariente on September 27 in West Palm Beach. For more details contact Dr. Bess at 561.355.3497 or email Angela.email@example.com.
