On July 21st-24th, 2014, Reading Horizons provided multiple trainings for the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR). During the course of 4 days, 327 teachers and approximately 50 administrators were trained on Reading Horizons simple, yet effective methodology that will now make a difference in the lives of countless inmates. Due to the success of the trainings, Reading Horizons is already making plans to conduct future trainings at CDCR focused on implementation and coaching in the coming months.
According to Reading Horizons Account Representative, Rob Openshaw, “All of the trainings were well received and teachers reported that they each feel very prepared to begin teaching the program in the classroom beginning Aug 1.”
The training was the result of the CDCR adopting Reading Horizons curriculum statewide for teaching reading to inmates that have struggled with reading their entire lives.
