Pressing staffing issues created enormous challenges for the New Mexico Corrections Department (NMCD) as they sought to help incarcerated individuals complete the necessary 12 hours of review time mandatory for the high school equivalency exam and hit a goal of 165 HiSET or GED graduations within six months.

NMCD partnered with Orijin to provide scalable professional development to educators and implement a hybrid classroom model. Cohorts of learners used Orijin’s platform and adaptive programming to complete the required HiSET review time and learn according to their skill level.

842% increase in HiSET graduations in just five months after training 40+ NMCD staff to support the HiSET Academy.
