About the B. B. "Sixty" Rayburn Correctional Center
Northshore Technical Community College partners with the B. B. Rayburn Correctional Center to offer educational opportunities to individuals incarcerated at the facility. The vast majority of incarcerated people will one day return home, and providing access to postsecondary education in prison means that these individuals are far less likely to recidivate and are better equipped to play productive and positive roles within their communities. Access to postsecondary education also improves prison safety for both incarcerated people and corrections employees alike.
In 2020, the U.S. Department of Education announced Northshore Technical Community College is included in the expansion of the Second Chance Pell Experimental Sites Initiative to provide need-based Pell grants to people in state and federal prisons. Currently, there are 63 colleges that teach in 26 states participating in Second Chance Pell; this second cohort of 67 new schools will bring the total to 130 colleges in 42 states and the District of Columbia.
