MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) — A new program is being launched in Shelby County to help troubled teens get back on track.
Schools and court officials have teamed up to launch the program on Jan. 7.
That's when a designated school employee who serves as a liaison with Shelby County juvenile court will begin giving students on probation some hands-on guidance.
Larry Scroggs, who is the court's chief administrative officer, says about 20 schools will participate in the beginning. Oversight will be provided for about 400 students in the first year.
