SCHOOL DISTRICT GOVERNING BOARDS
Sheriff Dannels, Jail Commander Bradshaw, Superintendent Clay and Deputy superintendent Madden discuss further educational plans for the jail. Currently, services provided at the jail are Special needs services for students up to 22 and educational services for those minor students. Soon we will add adult services which includes GED preparation and GED testing. This collaboration will be great for our county.
Collaborating with GradSolutions, LLC to form a County "Dropout Recovery" Accommodation school. This will potentially help reduce our Opportunity Youth rate (see Expect more Arizona - www.expectmorearizona.org/progress/?location=State::Arizona ) which is currently at 13% (our goal is 7%) and helps our schools. Opportunity youth are 16 - 24 year olds not going to school or working. More information to come.
GradSolutions have also donated 10 Chromebooks to our County Education center. THANK YOU!
We will use these devices for GED preparation or online education for our students who are released from the jail or detention center. Did you also know that we are now a GED testing site for our jail/detention center students?
Everyone should have a second chance and we love ALL of our students.
