School Based Probation Liaison Program (SBPL)

The School Based Probation Liaison (SBPL) Program is a joint venture between Memphis-Shelby County Schools (MSCS) and Juvenile Court of Memphis & Shelby County. The program was designed to:
• Increase communication between the school district and Juvenile Court.
• Meet the educational and other related needs of students.
• Provide schools with alternatives for managing students exhibiting behavioral problems.

The program operates in selected schools and provides immediate intervention to students under court jurisdiction by coordinating services with the school, community and family.

Additionally, the liaisons work in conjunction with the Court to ensure academic success and improve behavioral performance which will help promote a safe learning environment for all students.
