Don't confuse the civil case between you and the store with the criminal case in court between you and the state. Petty theft is a crime of moral turpitude, and if convicted it will really hurt your school/employment aspirations. You should talk to a lawyer, who may be able to work out a deal with the Judge whereby you can earn yourself a dismissal.

It sounds like a diversion program. If you do not participate they will charge you in court and you will likely end up with a conviction on your record which could haunt you for the rest of your life.
