A152019

The Court of Appeal found that a probation condition requiring a minor to “attend school regularly” was unconstitutionally vague because it failed to provide sufficient notice as to whether receiving alternative educational services  would constitute a violation. The court, therefore, modified the condition as follows: “Minor shall attend school (to include, as appropriate, a district or private school, online learning institution or at-home instruction) regularly and maintain satisfactory grades in the grading system utilized by the minor’s school in a manner consistent with her physical and medical condition, and obey school rules.”  Although the Court noted that this issue did not present a pure question of law, the Court exercised its discretion and addressed this issue given the important role education plays in the juvenile rehabilitation process.
