Purpose of Program:
The purpose of the PRSCEO program is to demonstrate the benefits of implementing a reentry education model, as described in the U. S. Department of Education (Department) November 2012 publication entitled ``A Reentry Education Model, Supporting Education and Career Advancement for Low-Skill Individuals in Corrections'' (Reentry Education Model).1 This Reentry Education Model is focused on:
(1) Supporting individuals, especially low-skilled adults, in their transition from correctional institutions 2 into the community by strengthening and aligning educational services 3 provided in those settings; (2) establishing a strong program infrastructure to support and improve education services in correctional institutions; (3) ensuring that education is well integrated into correctional institutions by making it a critical component of the intake and pre-release processes, and by aligning it with support and employment services; and (4) encouraging individuals in correctional institutions to identify and achieve education and career goals, recognizing that their education paths are not linear or uniform.------------------------------------------------- 1 See http://www 2. ed.gov/about/offices/list/ovae/pi/AdultEd/reentry-model.pdf.
