Several of these projects, including our recently launched Blended Learning Initiative, have been designed with and implemented by our partner agencies in the Consortium for Educational Excellence in Secure Settings.
Other CEEAS initiatives are designed to elicit broad participation by correctional and alternative schools across the country—all at no cost. Some of these initiatives are curricular, providing lesson plans, rubrics, and related materials for teachers. Others identify and recognize excellence and hard work by young people and educators in schools in secure facilities. Students compete in a poetry contest; teachers and principals from across the country are nominated for national recognition. The purpose of these initiatives is to propagate good ideas, share resources with teachers who are often isolated from one another, and raise the visibility of outstanding work.
