Jail Education Services

Washtenaw ISD provides direct educational services to individuals incarcerated at the Washtenaw County Jail. Our programs include helping clients to improve their basic academic skills, prepare for the G.E.D test, and computer literacy.  Additionally, we work in partnership with Ann Arbor Public Schools Adult Education to offer High School Diploma Completion and with Skills and Ability Education under the WIOA grant to offer Career Pathways. Students with disabilities maintain their entitlement to FAPE (Free Appropriate Public Education) as specified in their IEP (34 CFR 300.1). Our programs are student centered, flexible, continuously improved, and designed to work within the context of the Washtenaw County Jail.

ADA & Accessibility

Our School Strives To Ensure Our Website Is Accessible To All Our Visitors

Our new website will include improvements to ADA compliance and accessibility, and during this transition, we remain committed to maintaining our existing website's accessibility and usability.
