  Sheriff Brown photoNCSO Partners with Board of Education for Inmate Programs

The Newton County Sheriff’s Office is committed to providing quality inmate programs.  Our goal is to provide the rehabilitative and educational opportunities through coordinated community resources so inmates can prepare themselves for productive citizenship upon return to their communities. 

In an effort to provide a continuity of services to the inmate population, we are proud to have an ongoing partnership with the Newton County Board of Education. This partnership allows us to provide comprehensive services under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). IDEA is a federal mandate ensuring services for persons with disabilities throughout the nation. It governs how states and public agencies provide early intervention, special education and related services to more than 6.5 million people with disabilities.  Infants and toddlers with disabilities and their families receive early intervention services and persons ages 3-21, receive special education and related services under IDEA.

The inmates receive special education as a part of IDEA. They receive services to pursue their high school diploma in lieu of a General Education Development (GED), a high school diploma equivalent.

The NCSO adheres to IDEA by ensuring inmates, who meet the criteria, have access to educational programs.
