  • Document – document – document
  • Each and every class you take, what you learn, and now you have a record in case you are challenged months later.
  • Document each conversation with BOP Staff.
  • Education: GED, Associate, Undergrad, Master; or Occupation and Trades training = Personal Growth and Development

All this Documentation = a Release Plan

  • It makes your Case managers look better. Maybe they get a Raise, but this Saying Holds: If you help them get what they want, you’ll get what you want.
