Inmate Education


Placer School for Adults has partnered with the Placer County Sheriff's Office and the Nevada County Sheriff's Office to provide educational programming to inmates. This program was developed to meet the needs of inmates who have the desire to learn while in custody.  Please note: (No fees of any kind may be collected from students for participation in the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) Title II (Public Law 113–128) AEFLA programs.) These programs include English as a Second Language, High School Diploma, GED, and Inmate Education programs.
