Youth-In-Custody (YIC)


Youth-In-Custody education services at the Utah State Board of Education provides services and interventions for individuals under the age of 21 who are in custody of or receiving services from the Utah Department of Human Services or an equivalent Native American tribe, or who are being held in a juvenile detention facility.

Through contracts with local school districts, we provide educational administrative and support services for eligible students. We are committed to providing equitable educational experiences and quality learning opportunities for students in a variety of custody situations and placement settings.
