Thank you for the information, it is helpful. I appreciate it.
Do you know anything about signing up for vocational school/education?

I talked to the education counselor , if he does not have a high school diploma that are pretty good about greeting them there GED. They do have free community college for those who want to continue education but about a year and a half wait list is what I was told. If he is going for Bachelor or Masters you have to pay for it yourself but because you are paying for it you can get it a lot quicker. As for the vocational training I have heard they only give it to people with less than 2 years to go as part of the re entry program. Don't know how true that is but have him ask his CO for all these things right away. My son has been there 6 mo and they don't even give him a job yet! Good luck

Hi there I have moved your post and given you own thread so that you can hopefully find the information you need. The hotline thread is only for hotline updates.

My husband, who is in C4, did not call at all yesterday, and I have a friend with a loved one in C4 who did not call her yesterday either. Both of them usually call every day. We were able to visit this past weekend, but my husband did say that there was a room on quarantine at that time. Apparently something more widespread is going on now. Hopefully they can call today!

They are not on lockdown they are on modified programming due to institutional search/property reduction. Calls were coming out this week and program should be running this coming week and then next week return to modified programming until complete.

This is seriously BS. I got one 1 minute phone call yesterday from my husband because the c.o.'s were apparently tripping about the phones. My husband said he would call me as soon as he could this morning and nothing. He has group from 12pm-3pm. Sometimes I can't stand this damn prison. I got more calls when my husband was at a level 4 prison.
