USP Lee Educational Programs

Sep, 19 11 Post by: admin | No Comments

The Education Department at USP and SCP Lee offers a variety of programs for all inmates. The programs available include General Equivalency Diploma classes (GED), English as a Second Language (ESL) classes, Vocational Training classes (Building Trades, Computer Applications, HVAC, Apprenticeships), Adult Continuing Education classes, parenting classes, leisure time activities, and library services. As new educational programs become available, flyers will be posted in the Units, in the Education Department, and in the Recreation areas. The flyers will contain information about each class including sign-up procedures. The law library and leisure library are maintained in the Education Department. By policy, with minor exceptions, all Federal prisoners who do not have a verified High School Diploma or GED, must enroll for 240 hours in the Literacy Program. Inmates may ask to be released from this program after 240 hours but may lose good conduct time if sentenced under the Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act (VCCLEA) or the Prison Litigation Reform Act (PLRA) sentencing guidelines. All promotions in UNICOR and institution assignments beyond entry level grade are contingent upon successful completion o f the Literacy Program. Currently, UNICOR DOES NOT hire inmates who do not have a GED or high school diploma. Inmates may also take correspondence courses with the approval of the Supervisor of Education. More information, in reference to the Education /Recreation A&O Handbook.
