The Adult Basic Education Program provides individualized instruction. This is provided to meet the needs of incarcerated individuals who have reading and math scores below the sixth grade level on the Department's selected standardized test in reading, mathematics, and language arts in the context of real life adult problems and situations.

The goal of this program is to provide individuals with skills or competencies necessary to function successfully in contemporary society and to enable the participant to function at the sixth grade reading and mathematics level.

Individuals with reading and/or math levels below six grade as measured by the Test of Adult Basic Education (TABE) standardized achievement test are eligible to attend this program. Participants are to be retested using the appropriate level of the Test of Adult Basic Education (TABE) (Form 9 or 10) three times per year.

This program is available at all general confinement facilities.
