​Programs For ​Inmates

  • Education Programs


Deliver targeted, data-driven instruction designed to maximize academic achievement and prepare students for post-secondary education and the workplace


Prepare students for successful reentry into the workplace and community through PreRelease preparation, current vocational skills training and post-secondary academic coursework.                                  

Juvenile Education

Maintain high quality educational programs that align with Common Core State Standards for offenders below the age of 22 years and promote lifelong learning.

Vocational Educational Opportunities-technical education programs of the Robert Janss School, Idaho Department of Correction, are intended to provide offenders with the skills needed to obtain employment.

  • Treatment Programs

The Department provides evidence-based treatment to inmates. The ultimate goal is to reduce recidivism as inmates are released to communities.

All offenders are assessed to determine their medical condition, programmatic needs, education level, and mental health. The information from these assessments is used to format a rehabilitation program to address each offender's identified risk and needs.

Programs and services address the following areas: Cognitive/Behavioral, Mental health, Substance abuse, Education and vocational education, Family reunification, and Aftercare.

The basis of quality treatment and education is twofold: Good assessments and good case plans. Case plans prioritize offenders needs and create a plan for accountability that can lead to successful reintegration into our communities.
