Prison and Reentry Education Program Committee

The District Academic Senate (DAS) approved the formation of the Prison and Reentry Education Program Committee (PREPC) on April 5, 2022. The Committee has been tasked by DAS to make recommendations on district-wide programs that interface with state and local correctional facilities and on-campus reentry services in support of SB 1391, AB 417, and SB 416. The Committee addresses issues pertaining to instruction, professional development, student services, academic counseling, equity, technology, and funding opportunities related to prison and reentry education. In addition, the PREPC supports Los Rios' compliance with the California Department of Corrections, Parole, Probation, and Sheriff’s Departments in serving incarcerated and formerly incarcerated students with appropriate communication and academic resources. The Committee is responsible for the coordination of prison education and reentry efforts directed by the California Community Colleges Chancellor's Office (CCCCO).
