Topic 2: Bringing College Readiness and Career Education to California County Jails

Dates: Part I, May 3 & Part II, May 10, 2018 (10am - 11am) PST

Correctional Institutions and secondary and post-secondary schools across California are partnering like never before. These partnerships are growing for good reason: higher education reduces recidivism, changes lives, and builds stronger communities. Sheriff’s Departments are working with their local secondary and post-secondary schools to offer GED completion, career technical education, and, where feasible, full-credit transferrable college courses inside county jails. These webinars will address how and why community colleges partner with Sheriff’s Departments and will explore innovate partnerships running Adult Education and Career Technical Education programs in county jails. This series is based on Corrections to College California's College in Jail Toolkit on How to Build a Successful Partnership Between a Sheriff’s Department and Community College.

Part I: Best Practices for College Programs in County Jails: A Partnership Overview - May 3, 2018

Presenters: Debbie Mukamal, Executive Director, Stanford Criminal Justice Center and Kellie Nadler, Deputy Director, Renewing Communities Initiative

Part II: Innovative Partnerships between Sherriff's Departments and Secondary and Post-Secondary Schools - May 10, 2018

Panelists: Jamie Clayton, Chief, Imperial County Sheriff's Office; Martha Garcia, Acting Vice President of Academic Services and Vice President of Student Services, Imperial Valley College; Nancy Miller, Director of Regional Adult Education Programs, Santa Rosa Junior College; Liana Whisler, Inmate Programs and Services Coordinator, Sonoma County Sheriff's Office

We hope you can join us on these dates.

Sincerely,

JSPAC Committee
