Programs for Incarcerated Offenders

Students are selected and enrolled into programs based on an Individualized Treatment Plan (ITP) which is developed by the education staff. The ITP outlines educational services and prioritizes participation in recommended programs based on the offender’s age, program availability, projected release date and need for academic, vocational and life skills programs. Some offenders participate in more than one type or program. We hope that family members support the educational process by encouraging active participation in available programs.
