EDUCATION PROGRAM

This department is providing adult education by the process of matching instruction to the individual adult learner's needs through group or one-to-one settings.  The link between individual needs and instructional strategies is providing access to education by this program that includes basic literacy skills, consisting of a computer literacy program, "Hooked on Phonics" by Gateway, and "Literacy to ABE" from Steck-Vaughn.  The program also contains Adult Basic Education and GED.  The computerized Educational Instructional Program (NCS Learn, a Program for Adults from CCC Destinations), "begins at the foundation level of literacy skills and continues through GED preparation."  It also includes keyboarding and the Compton's Encyclopedia.

Successful Completion: Program Length: 90-180 Days. The offender remains in the program on a progressive and sequential basis with the final being a G.E.D., unless they are incapable, which will be determined by the Supervision/Literacy Officer.   An individual will be dismissed successfully when the mandated 6th grade level is achieved, a change in supervision status occurs and the offender has made positive progress or the G.E.D. is obtained. The individual may be continued past 180 days, if necessary. A contract is negotiated with the participant at the time of the program intake/orientation.
