Adult Education Instructors Summer classes will run Mondays through Thursdays starting June 13th and ending July 28th for both day and evening classes. Classes will only be offered at GGHS and LWTC. If you are interested in working this summer please take a moment to complete the Instructor Summer Interest Survey. This summer we will be scheduling classes somewhat differently where teachers will be schedule to work Mondays & Tuesdays and their counter parts on Wednesdays & Thursdays hopefully allowing for greater flexibility and less need for substitute coverage. In addition, our day time programs will also be scheduled differently with a three hour morning block and a three hour afternoon block. The intent is to give our students greater options when scheduling while also being able to accommodate additional students.


ESOL Instructors There is still space available for the EL-Civics and Communications Skills Workshop which is hosted by the FLDOE Division of Career and Adult Education and ACE of Florida. This workshop will be at Lorenzo Walker Technical College Saturday, April 16, 2016 9:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. We have included a new link above as some instructors have indicated problems with the previous link not working.
