The majority of Iowa children adjudicated delinquent have for years been served by private providers who have demonstrated the capacity and ability to successfully offer treatment, Palmer noted.

In response, Branstad spokesman Tim Albrecht said the governor had asked the Department of Human Services to Vans For Women Floral

In addition, Iowa Department of Education officials have concluded that the school run by the juvenile home is understaffed and underfunded and has repeatedly failed to offer children an adequate education.

A state education department report in October ordered "compensatory education" for all the youths who turned 18, were discharged from the juvenile home over the past 26 months and have yet to earn the equivalent of a high school diploma.

The move drew immediate support and criticism.

"develop an implementation plan" for the task force recommendations.

An official from Disability Rights Iowa, a federally funded but privately run organization that advocates for the disabled, expressed gratitude that the state was taking action to remove all of the home's clients but noted there was more work to be done.

The decision to effectively close the facility drew immediate criticism from state lawmakers unhappy about how the decision was made and a Toledo city councilman who called the move "crazy."

"Since the very beginning, we have said we as Iowans are responsible for these kids because we said we could take better care of them than their parents when we removed them from their homes," Rydberg said. "The governor has followed through and did what was best for kids."

It's uncertain what will happen to the Iowa Juvenile Home facility after Jan. 16, the tentative date by which the state hopes to have all of Skechers For Men 2017

State actions effectively close Juvenile Home

State Sen. Steve Sodders, a Democrat from State Center, was sharply critical of the state's move to close the juvenile home, which is located in his central Iowa district.

The juvenile home has been the subject of six separate investigations, most of which focused on what state officials have acknowledged was the illegal use of long term isolation.

In an interview, Sodders said he learned of the governor's decision just an hour before it was announced publicly. The move is not in the best interest of the children, he argued, noting that many had been placed at Toledo only after placements in other settings didn't work out.

"Our worst fears have been realized," Sodders said in a statement. "Gov. Branstad has done exactly what we asked him not to do. Closing the Iowa Juvenile Home and the State Training School for Girls at Toledo is not in the best interests of the children, the staff and the Toledo community."

a statement. "After a thorough examination of the task force recommendations, we believe finding appropriate alternative placements is in the best interest of the youth."

Layoffs of all 93 employees of the home will be effective Jan. 16.

Decision process upsets lawmakers

The advocacy group will continue to represent the juveniles and will continue to provide oversight to ensure that the youths who have been at the juvenile home are properly placed, said Jane Hudson, the group's director, and Beth Rydberg, an investigator with the group.

"We're so close to the beginning of the session, I question the governor's leadership here in not waiting until legislators from the area had some input on what we're going to do," Sodders said.

State officials said the decision to close the juvenile home was based on recommendations from a task force appointed by Gov. Terry Branstad.

But others disagreed.

Meanwhile, Disability Rights Iowa, the advocacy group that has prodded state officials to improve conditions at the juvenile home, announced it would launch an investigation into educational services provided at the Eldora State Training Vans Atwood Blue School for Boys. Both the juvenile home and the training school are run by DHS.

In November, Sodders called on Branstad to allow the future of the juvenile home to be decided in public rather than behind closed doors.

The announcement also leaves state Department of Human Services officials, guardians and advocates for the girls scrambling to find services at other state facilities or from private medical providers in the next 37 days.

"We will work with our state facilities and community based providers who can offer a variety of services and supports which would not be available on the Toledo campus if it were serving only a very small number of delinquent girls," Palmer said.

With approval from the courts, many of the delinquent girls will most likely be served in a high level of care at the state's psychiatric medical institutes for children. Others will find treatment through community based providers, DHS officials said Monday.

"This was a difficult decision," said Charles Palmer, director of the Department of Human Services, in Skechers Air Cooled Memory Foam Black

The Register's reporting has revealed numerous problems at the facility, including that youths at the home spent a total of 47,171 hours in seclusion cells over a 12 month span.

Twelve months ago, Disability Rights Iowa officials visited the home and discovered three girls living in small, concrete block cells. Two of the youths had reportedly been there for two months; the third had been there almost a year.
