Adult and Community Education
"In The Know" - 2/2/2016
A Message from the Leadership Team
Adult Education is officially in full swing with many classes at or near capacity. As we continue this semester you should hear more conversation in regards to the WIOA legislation. The great part of WIOA is that it is focused on integrating education and training to improve the employability of the state’s workforce through language acquisition, cultural awareness, academic skills and College and Career Readiness. Please reach out to Scott Schnappauf to learn more about WIOA and make sure to continue to share with your students the Tuesday Did You Know as those are key elements of the WIOA legislation.
