Senate Bill 94/CYDC Statewide Advisory Committee: In 1992, the DYC appointed a statewide advisory committee composed of members of juvenile justice agencies to advise the DYC on policy and program issues affecting the successful implementation of the legislation. The committee has reviewed criteria for placement and the allocation formula, provided input on program evaluation, developed formats for the yearly submission of local SB94 plans, and reviewed and approved all plans prior to implementation.

Common Senate Bill 94/CYDC Services: While each local juvenile services planning committee has the responsibility and freedom to develop a Senate Bill 94 plan that meets the specific needs of its particular judicial district, there are services that are common to many judicial districts.
