FAIRFIELD, Calif. (AP) — Faculty from Northern California's Solano Community College will begin teaching inmates at a nearby prison under a deal unanimously approved by the school's governing board.
The Vallejo Times Herald reported Thursday that the agreement will allow inmates at California State Prison-Solano to earn college credit and also have access to counseling, placement, and disability support services.
The newspaper says the college will be able to count the inmate students into its Full-Time Equivalent Students roster. FTES is a calculation the state uses to determine how much funding to send to each community college.
Solano College is operating with a $1.3 million deficit budget during the 2014-15 fiscal year, due to a reduction of FTES within the district.
