Report on Expansion of the Silver Oak Academy
Group: Maryland Department of Juvenile Services
In the Report on the State Operating Budget (SB 150) and the State Capital Budget (SB 151) and related Recommendations - Joint Chairmen's Report, 2012 Session, p. 136, the Maryland General Assembly requested that the Department of Juvenile Services (DJS) submit a report on expanding capacity at the Silver Oak Academy. Specifically, the committees requested DJS to conduct an evaluation of the potential for expanding capacity at the Silver Oak Academy in Carroll County, Maryland. The committees are concerned that the department has been unable to address the issue of inadequate treatment bed capacity through its capital construction program and believe that an additional 48-bed expansion of the Silver Oak Academy capacity could more expeditiously address the need. In conducting the evaluation, DJS should identify all potential avenues and obstacles for expanding the program's capacity, including any potential statutory changes. The submitted report should also include the treatment bed need for youth in each region, a potential timeline for the expansion, the anticipated impact an expansion would have on the pending placement population, and any fiscal impact. The report should be submitted to the budget committees no later than August 30, 2012.
