KPS Title I Jail Program

Sponsor:  Kalamazoo Public Schools
Principal Investigator:  Dr. Chris Coryn
Co-Principal Investigator:  Kelly Robertson, Kurt Wilson
May 10, 2010 – June 3, 2011

The purpose of this evaluation is to assess the impact of the Title I Part D funded supplemental educational services on Jail residents’ high school diploma and GED attainment and to learn how the services can be improved. These services have not yet been evaluated comprehensively. The rationale for conducting the evaluation is to partially address Title I Part D funding requirements, as well as to determine the impact and learn how to improve the services. Further, this evaluation is needed since research on similar services has yielded variable findings and most has been conducted with prison offenders. We hope the findings of this evaluation will help improve the services in the future and increase the number of Jail residents who receive a high school diploma or GED, which is thought to lead to reduced recidivism and increased post-incarceration education and employment
