§908. Student furlough program

A. The secretary for the Department of Public Safety and Corrections may authorize a temporary furlough to deserving students of any juvenile institution, unless, after receiving notification of the proposed furlough, the juvenile court having jurisdiction or the district attorney notifies the department of its objection. If the district attorney objects, the court shall set the matter for a contradictory hearing. The temporary furlough is to serve as a rehabilitative tool to assist the child in maintaining family and community relations during the period of his commitment. A temporary furlough as provided herein is not to be considered a release from commitment and does not affect the jurisdiction of the juvenile court or the authority of the department as to the children granted a temporary furlough.

B. A responsible member of the child's family or other previously approved adult must sign a custody receipt and provide transportation for the child to and from the juvenile institution.
