Biographical or historical data
The Barrett Juvenile Correctional Center opened in 1915 as the Industrial Home for Wayward Colored Girls. In 1920 the name was changed to the Virginia Industrial School for Colored Girls and in 1950 the General Assembly changed the name to the Janie Porter Barrett School for Girls in honor of the schools founder. Barrett was integrated in 1965, became coeducational in 1972 and became all male and was renamed the Barrett Learning Center for Boys in 1977. Today, the Barrett Juvenile Correctional Center is administered by the Department of Juvenile Justice and the school within the facility is managed by the Department of Correctional Education. Barrett is scheduled to be closed in March 2005.

Governing access note
  • The Virginia Freedom of Information Act (Code of Virginia, 2.2-3705.5) establishes guidelines for restricting access to confidential forms of information in order to protect personal privacy. The Virginia Public Records Act (Code of Virginia, 42.1-78) includes a provision for closing all privacy protected information for 75 years from the date of creation. In accordance with this legislation, the Library of Virginia can and will restrict, in whole or in part, access to any privacy protected information or any other confidential information contained in these records
  • The Library of Virginia is not a school or an educational institution, but will follow the federal Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) guidelines and the Virginia Freedom of Information Act in closing educational records found in our collections. This includes any records that were maintained by an educational institution or state agency that are directly related to an identifiable student, such as grades, courses taken, or conduct. The Virginia Freedom of Information Act excludes scholastic records containing information concerning identifiable individuals, as well as confidential letters and statements of recommendation placed in files regarding admission, applications for employment, or receipts of an honor (Code of Virginia, 2.2-3705.4 (2)), and tests or examinations prepared for the purposes of student evaluation (Code of Virginia, 2.2-3705.1 (4))
  • Per FERPA, directory type information may be made available. This includes student’s name, address, photograph, date and place of birth, major field of study, dates of attendance, grade level, enrollment status, participation in officially recognized activities and sports, weight/height of members of athletic teams, degrees, honors and awards received, and the most recent educational institution attended (types of information that might readily be found in a yearbook). However, schools are required to give notice to parents and students as to what type of directory information will be released. Since we are not in a position to make students/parents aware that directory information will be made available and often will not know what the school advised, most student records in the collections at the LVA will be closed in their entirety for the full 75 years, unless the educational institution’s privacy notice regarding the information can be located
  • The records of the Barrett Juvenile Correctional Center have not been processed. Please contact Archives Reference about the status of individual boxes and volumes. All records more than 75 years old are open for research
