Under state law, local governments are tasked with adopting minimum training and educational standards for juvenile case managers. S.B. 61 passed during the 82nd Regular Legislature (2011) mandated the establishment minimum training and educational standards for juvenile case managers. Prior to this enactment, Texas law established no minimum standard of training or education for juvenile case managers. See also, Meeting the S.B. 61 Mandate.
2018 Juvenile Case Managers Seminar
TMCEC is excited to again offer training for juvenile case managers on June 11-13, 2018 in Austin at the Omni Southpark Hotel. The purpose of this conference is to create consistency across court systems and enable juvenile case managers to be more effective in their multifaceted jobs and to optimize their utility as part of the courtroom workgroup. It is a forum to share ideas that help prevent children from becoming further involved in the justice system and to curb juvenile crime at the local level. Curriculum includes topics mandated by the legislature for juvenile case managers.
The deadline to register is May 11, 2018. The cost to register is $150. Those attending will receive two night’s accommodations (in double room sharing with another participant) at the Omni Southpark Austin and conference meals (breakfast and lunch on June 12 and breakfast on June 13). Those not wishing to share a room can choose to pay an additional $50 per night to have a private room. Course materials will be available online prior to the conference. Juvenile case managers who are not employed by municipalities may register for the conference after May 1, 2018 ($200 registration fee).
