All offenders are academically assessed by state certified teachers using the TABE (Test of Adult Basic Education) which determines the offender’s level of academic functioning for educational placement. Offenders who test between the sixth and eighth grade level are placed in Adult Basic Education. Offenders who test above the eighth grade level or who do not have a high school diploma, are placed in the General Equivalency Diploma (GED) class. Once education levels are determined, individualized education plans are developed. In addition to classroom instruction, a computer lab with educational software for all learning levels is utilized. The TABE test is given to offenders prior to discharge to determine their level of improvement. Education classes are continued in the aftercare portion of the program and remedial reading is provided to offenders who have a high school diploma but have reading skills below the literacy level of sixth grade.
