Default As was promised..."Bridging Education Program"

As was previously promised here is an update regarding the "Bridging Education Program".

It is an education program that has supposedly been already implemented within the mainline institutions as of November 1, 2003. It is a distance learning method. Only inmates that are eligible to receive day for day credits will be assigned to the program while awaiting work, training or an education assignment. Again, there are some "kink's" and they are going to take time to work out.

Now, here is the fun part. Now I know how a translator feels (smile).

This same type of "Briding Education Program" will take place within the Reception Centers beginning January 1, 2004. Inmates that are eligible will start to earn day for day credits. Inmates that are received into a Reception beginning January 1, 2004 and after will began to earn this day for day credit.

Now we get into those that are eligible. Non-violent, and non-strike inmates will be eligible. Inmates with a mixed-credit might be eligible (I would have to translate this one later). All parole violators that are in pending status (would have to translate later). Inmates that are ineligible for credits will not be allowed within this program.

I promised some within a PM that I would deliver this information to them. I just don't remember whom?

Okay, secondly, I need to clear up a joke or at least at the time I thought it was cute. I just did not expect to receive 20 "congradulations". I was going to attempt this by way of PM's but since I said it in an open forum I'll just address it in an open forum. Cobra and I are not engaged (sorry oneway). When I started receiving the "congradulations" I had to think on how to clean it up. Well, this is the only way I know-----just come straight out with it.

In closing, I hope some of this information will help you. Again, anything is subject to change.

Hi Kitty,

Thanks for the information. It seems that my boyfriend finally got his "paper" to start his pre-release program. He starts today. He also told me that it looks like his half time started Nov. 1st. It sounds like he is part of this Bridging Education Program.

Okay I am more confused now than before. I am very new to this and I thought I had it figured out but II think not now. Maybe you can help me with this. My fiance was sentenced this month to 16 months he is getting credit for time served in 2001 of 6 months. I called North Kern today and they said his release date was April 2004, but someone had told me that he would be eligible for this bridge program and that they would adjust his time after this went into effect on Dec 1,2003. So now after reading this I am really lost. And what is this half-time? Is this a good thing and who gets it?Please any informatin that you have would help Thank you

OK, Kittie, I think I need further translation. My husband is a striker, is working in an educational class and does have level 1 points. What does 'mixed credits' mean?

Mixed credit code mean if your husband had several offenses and at least one of those offenses included a Credit Code of 1. Some credit codes have a 1, 3, 4, etc. The only thing worng here is your husband is a "strikeer" but this can change. It changes everyday. So don't look at the terminology of today but look at ther terminology in the future.

Sriker:

You boyfriend, husband woul not br entitled to mixed credit codes until one of his offesnes comes under the category Cred it Code 1. This is easy to resolve ask him. He knows. H received a Legal Status Summary and to the right of that sheet lists all the credits codes Allhe needs is a Credit Code under any one of these Cedit Code and tha twould make him eligible. Hopefully this made sense.

The following inmates are ELIGIBLE for the Bridging Programs:



** All New Commitment (NC) and Parole Violator Returned With a New Term (PWNT) inmates who are serving a non-violent, non-strike Determinate Sentence Law (DSL) term (commitment offense on or after Jan. 1, 1983, or signed a PC Section 2934 waiver). This commitment type is entered the Offender Based Information System (OBIS) as a Credit Code 1.



** All NC and PWNT inmates serving a DSL term with "mixed credit codes where at least one period is a Credit Code 1. A "mixed credit codes" case consists of a DSL term with consecutive count(s)/ enhancement(s) that earn different rates of credits.



** All parole violators returned to custody (PRTC) and parolees returned to custody pending revocation proceedings (PENDREV).



The following inmates are NOT ELIGIBLE:



** All NC and PWNT offenders whose credit is limited to 20 % (Credit code 3), 15% (Credit code 4 or 6) or zero credit (Credit code 5). In other words, any offender serving a DSL term that is NOT credit code 1.



** Parole violators who have been deemed ineligible to receive worktime credit by the Board of Prison Terms (BPT).



** All inmates who are serving a Life Term (Credit codes 31-36), including Lifers with consecutive DSL terms that are credit code 1.



AS FOR THE EXISTING POPULATION AT THE MAINLINE INSTITUTIONS:



"Each mainline institution will be provided with a list from Offender Based Information System (OBIS) of inmates who are Credit Code 1. This list will be used for the initial entry in the Automated Release Date Tracking System (ARDTS). Once the eligible inmates are entered into ARDTS and a "Missing PC 2933 Eligibility" list shall be generated. The Correctional Case Records Analyst (CCRA) shall research the list to determine PC Section 2933 credit eligibility. The results shall be provided to staff at the ARDTS desk for entry into the system."

Remember as of November 1, 2003 mainline has already implemented this program. It's the Reception Centers who won't start this program until January 1, 2004.

Kathy did a good job of explaining it. It gets really difficult when you start to get into mixed credit codes especially when the judge orders them to run consecutive to each other. You wouldn't believe how difficult that is to calculate.

They should probably have an Analyst in R&R to catch these guys as soon as they come off the bus. That way they can be released on time. Time adds up very quickly.
