The Special Education program at RSW Regional jail provides educational services to inmates ages 18 through the school year of their 22 birthday.  This is a voluntary program; however once the inmate makes the commitment to attend classes they must attend all classes unless a documented excuse is provided.  The eligibility process is the same as non-incarcerated peers.  If they have a current eligibility then an updated IEP is completed.  If the eligibility has lapsed a new eligibility is established and an IEP written.

 

Educational services provided are as unique as the individual, as the “I” in IEP indicates.  Services could include preparation for admission to community college or taking the GED test, meeting requirements for a high school diploma, life skills, or simply improving skills already learned.  

 

When beginning the educational process at RSW inmates are given an assessment in reading, writing, and math to determine their current level of academic functioning.  This assessment is given through a program called AZTEC.  AZTEC is aligned with TABE, GED, and Common Core standards.  

 

Once the AZTEC assessment is completed it provides a report indicating the areas that are in need of improvement. Daily instruction is provided through a variety of methods.  Methods include utilizing the lessons on the AZTEC stand-alone programs, GED Academy, teacher prepared worksheets and lectures, and teacher directed internet instruction.
