CLLC services are provided by the Contra Costa County Office of Education (CCCOE) via a public entity contract with CDCR. CLLC’s goal is to increase the literacy skills of 40 percent of the participating parolees by achieving a significant learning gain as measured by the Comprehensive Adult Student Assessment Systems, after completing at least 40 hours of instruction. The computer curriculum focuses on basic proficiency in reading, writing, and math skills. The goal for each CLLC site is to provide 800 hours of classroom instruction per month that:
15 parole offices statewide. In addition, CLLCs are also located in 8 Day Reporting Centers and 1 Residential Multi Service Center located throughout California.
Learning gains are measured after completion of at least 40 hours of instruction in the lab.
All parolees subject to the jurisdiction of Division of Adult Parole Operations (DAPO) are eligible for participation. Though not required, parolee should have an identified Correctional Offender Management Profiling for Alternative Sanctions (COMPAS) need or low Test of Adult Basic Education (TABE) score.
