Sheriff Hall is arresting the problem of illiteracy and creating solutions to create productive citizens through education after release. The academic learning centers (CDM, MCC, CDF, DDC, and MSE) at the Davidson County Sheriff’s Office offer Adult Education, Vocation and Post-Secondary Education. The education programs have defined goals and strategies that measure success. Students work on basic to advanced educational programs; such as beginning literacy, English as a Second Language (ESL), High School Equivalency Test (HiSET) program, vocational aptitude testing, Microsoft Office skills, Apprenticeship training and college courses. A diagnostic test is given to determine the level of each learner prior to starting classes. Materials are provided in Spanish and English.
The academic learning centers primary focus is to offer participants who did not complete their traditional high school experience an opportunity to obtain a high school equivalency diploma. The HiSET program is compatible to the current professional development materials used for high school equivalency assessment and covers five core areas:
- Language Arts – Reading
- Language Arts – Writing
- Social Studies
The current HiSET exam is aligned to and measures the Office of Career, Technical and Adult Education (OCTAE) College and Career Readiness Standards. Classes are open to participants who request referral through their Case Manager’s, instructors and/or community leaders. When they are prepared to take the official HiSET examination, extra sessions are provided. All of the Sheriff’s Education Coordinators are well qualified. Each instructor has a bachelor’s degree and correctional experience.
