School credit
« on: July 29, 2016, 11:06:29 PM »
Hi all! My husband has a good time contract for schooling at Hill. He's not sure what's counted as "time in school". Is it the whole 8 week period (the day he started through his last day of class)? Or Is his good time calculated using only the days he was in class. If it's the whole 8 weeks, that would mean he'd get 4 weeks off his sentence. If it's only for "chair days" it would be 16 days off his sentence. Anyone have actual recent experience with this? Thanks!

It is half the number of days he is in class.    That would be nice if it were 4 weeks!  But it isn't calculated that way....sorry
