Agency History

Juvenile corrections efforts by the state of Texas began in 1887 with the passage of legislation for a House of Correction and Reformatory (which later became the State Juvenile Training School) (House Bill 21, 20th Texas Legislature, Regular Session). This correctional facility for boys began operation in 1889 in Gatesville. In 1913, the 33rd Legislature authorized the creation of the Girls' Training School (House Bill 570, Regular Session), a correctional facility for girls in Gainesville. It began operation in 1916. In 1945, the legislature approved the establishment of the State Training School for Delinquent and Dependent Colored Girls (Senate Bill 46, 49th Legislature, Regular Session); located in Brady, it began operation in 1947. Between 1887 and 1920, separate boards of directors managed each of these schools and reported directly to the governor. The Texas State Board of Control, created by the 36th Legislature in 1919 (Senate Bill 147, Regular Session) took over management of the three schools from 1920 to 1949.

Additional 1887 legislation established facilities to care for dependent and neglected children. The State Orphan's Asylum (later known as the Corsicana State Home), began operation in 1889 in Corsicana (Senate Bill 261, 20th Legislature, Regular Session, 1887). Further legislation in 1887 created another home (House Bill 445, 20th Legislature, Regular Session), located in Austin, known as the Deaf, Dumb and Blind Asylum for Colored Youth (later named the Texas Blind, Deaf and Orphan School). A third home was established in 1919, located in Waco (House Bill 112, 36th Legislature, Regular Session), as the State Home for Dependent and Neglected Children (later known as the Waco State Home). The state homes, as with the schools for delinquent children, were managed by the Board of Control beginning in 1920. Management of the Waco State Home passed to the Texas State Department of Public Welfare in 1939 (Senate Bill 36, 46th Legislature, Regular Session). Management of the Corsicana State Home; the Texas Blind, Deaf and Orphan Home; and the Waco State Home was transferred to the newly created Texas Board for State Hospitals and Special Schools in 1949 (House Bill 1, 51st Legislature, Regular Session).

In 1947, the 50th Legislature created the State Training Code Commission (Senate Concurrent Resolution 34, Regular Session), composed of seven members appointed by the governor, to study the state schools for delinquent children and examine the problem of juvenile delinquency. It was to determine changes that would improve the administration of the schools and enable them to more nearly accomplish their broad social objectives. The commission's report to the 51st Legislature resulted in the creation of the Texas State Youth Development Council.

The Texas State Youth Development Council was created in 1949 (House Bill 705, 51st Legislature, Regular Session). It was composed of six "influential" citizens appointed by the governor with the consent of the senate, and eight ex-officio members: Chairman, Board of Control; Executive Director, Department of Public Welfare; Commissioner of Education; Executive Director, Board for State Hospitals and Special Schools; State Health Officer; Director, Texas Department of Public Safety; Executive Secretary, Texas State Parks Board; and Chairman, Texas Employment Commission. The governor appointed the chair. The purpose of the council was to coordinate state efforts to help communities develop and strengthen child services. It was also directed to administer the state's correctional facilities for delinquent children by providing constructive training aimed at the rehabilitation and successful reestablishment of these children into society. The council took over control of the correctional schools then managed by the State Board of Control: the Gatesville State School for Boys, Gainesville State School for Girls, and the Brady State School for Delinquent Colored Girls.

The State Youth Development Council became the Texas Youth Council in 1957 (Senate Bill 303, 55th Legislature, Regular Session). It was composed of three members appointed by the governor with consent of the senate, to six year overlapping terms, and the members elected the chair. The members were to be citizens recognized in their communities for their interest in youth. The size of the commission increased to six in 1975 (Senate Bill 278, 64th Legislature, Regular Session). The Youth Council had the same duties as the State Youth Development Council, with the additional mandate to provide parole supervision for certain delinquent children until their discharge. The legislature also directed the Youth Council to operate institutions for dependent and neglected children (Corsicana State Home, Waco State Home, and Texas Blind, Deaf and Orphan School). During the 1970s the Youth Council initiated a county juvenile probation subsidy program that was transferred to the newly created Texas Juvenile Probation Commission in 1981 (House Bill 1904, 67th Legislature, Regular Session).

In 1971, a class action lawsuit, Morales v. Turman, was brought against the Texas Youth Council, its officers, and staff by children confined in the juvenile corrections facilities. In response to the lawsuit, changes were initiated in the way juvenile correction facilities were operated.

The Texas Youth Council was renamed as the Texas Youth Commission (TYC) in 1983 (Senate Bill 422, 68th Texas Legislature, Regular Session). The duties of the commission included providing services to delinquent youths between 10 and 21 years of age through programs and facilities that administer constructive training for rehabilitation. The TYC operated under the Texas Human Resource Code, Title 3, Chapter 61, as the state's juvenile correction agency. Under Title 3 of the Texas Family Code, the TYC provided for the care, custody, rehabilitation, and reestablishment into society of those youth convicted of delinquent conduct. The TYC operated secure residential, institutional, and community-based programs for delinquent youth and supervised the youth once they returned to the community. It also contracted with private sector providers to operate residential and non-residential services. The TYC protected the identities of youth admitted to their facilities by keeping personal information confidential (such as names and home addresses) and not allowing photographs of the children to be taken (without permission of the child) as required by the Texas Family Code, Section 58.005.

In 1995, the 74th Legislature passed an omnibus juvenile justice reform package, House Bill 327 (Regular Session), that changed the way juvenile justice was administered in Texas. The bill expanded the offenses for which a youth could receive a determinate sentence (sentence with a fixed term) to include most violent offenses, such as murder, rape, and aggravated assault. It also enabled supervision of youth to continue into the adult criminal justice system; lowered the age that a juvenile could be tried as an adult from 15 to 14; and directed that both the most violent juvenile defenders and mentally ill delinquent youth be sent to the TYC. In light of this new legislation, TYC provided greater structure, strictly enforced discipline, and increased accountability of the delinquent youth in their programs.

Youth committed for minor offenses are the responsibility of local governments. The TYC received the most serious offenders with longer sentences. These comprised two categories: committed juveniles and sentenced offenders. Committed juveniles were sent to the commission by juvenile courts after adjudication, allowing the Youth Commission to determine the length of stay and the type of services provided (e.g., Capitol Offender Program or Chemical Dependency Program). The second category, sentenced offenders, were given a specific sentence through determinate sentencing status and could not be released prior to their sentence termination.

The TYC directly operated fourteen correctional institutions and nine community-based residential programs and contracted with private sector providers for a variety of residential programs. Through these institutions and facilities the TYC provided accredited secondary education, vocational training, and several specialized programs concerning sex offenders, capital offenders who have committed murder, chemical dependency, resocialization, independent living preparation, mentally retarded youth, and seriously emotionally disturbed youth. The TYC also operated a parole system for supervision of youth released from residential programs.

The TYC also administered the Interstate Compact on Juveniles (ICJ) for the state of Texas. The ICJ provides for the cooperative supervision of juvenile probationers and parolees who move from state to state. It also provides for the return of non-delinquent runaway youth, parole and probation absconders, and escapees to their home state. The administrators of each state compact are members of the Association of Juvenile Compact Administrators (AJCA). The AJCA holds annual meetings and sponsors mid-winter workshops on relevant juvenile issues.

In 2011, the TYC and the Texas Juvenile Probation Commission (TJPC) were abolished and their operations were transferred to the newly-created Texas Juvenile Justice Department (TJJD) (Senate Bill 653, 82nd Legislature, Regular Session). The TJJD works in partnership with local county governments, courts, and communities to promote public safety by providing support and services to any individual who is at least 10 years old but not yet 17 at the time he or she committed an act defined as "delinquent conduct" or "conduct in need of supervision," from the time of initial contact through the end of supervision.

According to an internal agency history (and repeated by the Handbook of Texas) the roots of the Youth Commission extend back to 1859 when the 8th Legislature authorized separate corrections facilities for children (the age of criminal responsibility was nine at this time; it was raised to seventeen in 1918). No funding was provided and such facilities were not established until 1887. The State Archives is unable to locate the 1859 legislation referred to in these sources.

Detailed Description of the Records

Reports and studies, 1932, 1957-2013, undated,
11.65 cubic ft.

The Texas Youth Commission (TYC) provided for the care, custody, rehabilitation, and reestablishment into society of those youth convicted of delinquent conduct. The TYC operated secure residential, institutional, and community-based programs for delinquent youth and supervised the youth once they returned to the community. It also contracted with private sector providers to operate residential and non-residential services. Records include reports and studies created by the Texas Youth Commission and its predecessor agency, the Texas Youth Council, dating 1932, 1957-2013, undated. Earlier Texas Youth Council reports were conducted by the Research and Planning Division or the Division of Evaluation and Research and include a research proposal presented by a consultant to the Texas Youth Council. Later reports from the Texas Youth Commission were created by various divisions and also include reports by other agencies or organizations that were reviewed by TYC staff. Topics include research studies, program evaluations, minimum standards for some programs, and a master plan for youth development services, along with annual reports, incident reports, and reports to the legislature. There are two instances of CDs accompanying the text of a report.
The compiled incident and injury reports list incidents in chronological order including name of TYC youth, TYC number and description of incident. Some of the older reports include more incident descriptions. The reports are for the Gatesville State School for Boys, the Mountain View School for Boys, and the Gainesville State School for Girls. Annual reports date from 1958-2004. General report topics include monthly construction status reports for TYC facilities undergoing renovation; customer service; Department of Justice reports; annual financial reports; Internal Audit reports; laws relating to children and youth; mental health issues; Ombudsman reports; agency treatment effectiveness; rehabilitation services; recruitment and retention plans; and safety and security issues. Individual TYC facilities represented in these reports include Brownwood State Home and School for Girls, Gainesville State School for Girls, Mountain View School for Boys, and Giddings State Home and School for Boys, along with several halfway houses including Ayers House, York House, Tamayo House, Schaeffer House, and regional juvenile facility program monitoring reports. Reports to the legislature include Legislative Appropriations Requests (LARs) from 1998-2008, along with reports to the Senate Finance Committee, Senate Committee on Criminal Justice, House Corrections and House Committee on Juvenile Justice and Family Issues. The legislative reports focus on new proposals and legislation that would impact services provided by the Texas Youth Commission and changes the agency has been asked to propose, often related to budgetary or disciplinary issues.
The Texas Documents Collection also holds several research studies and reports of the Youth Council/Commission from the 1970s-1990s, most in the 1990s. Other reports concerning some of the youth facilities from the 1920s-1940s can be found in the Texas State Board of Control records.

15.19 cubic ft.

The Texas Youth Commission (TYC) provided for the care, custody, rehabilitation, and reestablishment into society of those youth convicted of delinquent conduct. The TYC operated secure residential, institutional, and community-based programs for delinquent youth and supervised the youth once they returned to the community. It also contracted with private sector providers to operate residential and non-residential services. Records include policy and procedure manuals and handbooks of the Texas Youth Council and the Texas Youth Commission, dating 1953-2008, undated. There are manuals and handbooks covering agency-wide services, individual programs, and some for managing specific youth facilities.
Handbooks include administrator, employee, student and volunteer handbooks. Manuals include specific divisions such as accounting, administrative division/central office, chemical dependency, child care information system, community service, general education procedures, fire and safety guidelines, food services, general institutions, maintenance and construction, parole, personnel, risk management, sexual behavior treatment, and volunteers. Individual TYC facility manuals include Brownwood State Homes and School, Corsicana State Home, Crockett State School, Gatesville State School for Boys, Giddings State Home and School, and halfway houses. Agency-wide manuals include general administrative organization of TYC, operating policies and procedures, interpersonal communication skills, and resocialization.
A handbook of procedures on handling Interstate Compact on Juveniles cases can be found in the series Interstate Compact on Juveniles files. Older outreach publications by the agency that discuss treatment programs and/or services available at specific facilities operated by the agency can be found in the series Youth Commission outreach and informational publications. Reports and evaluations of some programs that may include a manual as part of the report can be found in the series Reports and studies. Older manuals and handbooks from some of the orphan homes and state schools can be found in the Texas State Board of Control records.
The General Administrative Policy Manual and selected policies from the General Administrative Policy Manual for working with the Interstate Compact on Juveniles are available on the TYC website via the Internet Archive Wayback Machine at https://web.archive.org/web/*/tyc.state.tx.us. Current policies can be reviewed at the Texas Juvenile Justice Department website http://www.tjjd.texas.gov/about/index.aspx.

The Texas Youth Commission (TYC) provided for the care, custody, rehabilitation, and reestablishment into society of those youth convicted of delinquent conduct. The TYC operated secure residential, institutional, and community-based programs for delinquent youth and supervised the youth once they returned to the community. It also contracted with private sector providers to operate residential and non-residential services. Records include strategic plans from the Texas Youth Commission and coordinated strategic plans from the Texas Youth Commission and the Texas Juvenile Probation Commission, dating 1980-2008, 2010, 2013. Strategic plans are long-range planning tools in which the goals and objectives of the agency are presented along with performance measures for each. Plans contain a mission statement, a statement of philosophy, and external/internal assessment of the agency, and the goals of the agency. Each goal contains objectives, strategies, and output measures for measuring and achieving the goals. Also present is an organization chart of the agency.
