The Oregon Department of Corrections will be ending its contracts with multiple community colleges in the state in a move to bring its adult education program “in-house.”
The state prison agency currently contracts with six community colleges in Oregon to provide high school diploma equivalency testing, or GED services, to inmates across its 14 facilities. The agency will not be renewing five of those contracts set to end Jan. 31, 2021. It will be ending the sixth, with Portland Community College early – on that same date.
