Aiken County Adult Education Task Force

Purposes of the Task Force:

To examine and develop a comprehensive understanding of the adult education system as it now exists in Aiken County.

To develop an action plan to expand and/or improve the system to so that more Aiken County adults who do not have a high school diploma will enter and successfully complete the program.

The Task Force developed a new work-centered model for adult education.  Public Education Partners provided grant writing assistance to the District, which was awarded $209,700 from the South Carolina Department of Labor to implement a pilot project.  Our goal is to prepare adult education students to enter the career of chemical operator by the summer of 2003.
