Institutional Education

Institutional Education in Washington state provides K-12 basic education services to incarcerated and previously incarcerated juveniles. The goal is to provide these youth the opportunity to meet the same challenging state academic content standards and student academic achievement standards that all children in the state are expected to meet. OSPI oversees the four Educational Service Districts and 35+ school districts that provide these services inside:

  • State-operated juvenile institutions and group homes
  • County-operated juvenile detention centers and group homes
  • Adult jails and state correctional facilities
  • Community schools

Title I, Part D federal funds are allocated to OSPI to improve educational services in these settings. These funds are then distributed to eligible juvenile detention centers, Juvenile Rehabilitation Administration long-term facility schools, and group homes. The money is used to provide services needed to make a successful transition from institutionalization to further schooling, training or employment; to prevent at-risk youth from dropping out of school; and to provide them with a support system to ensure their continued education.
