Monroe County Schools Adult Education Joins High-Impact Coalition
Monroe County Community School Corporation’s Adult Education Program has been selected by the Council for Adult & Experiential Learning to join its High Impact Coalition to design a new framework to for effectively serving adult learners.
The Council reviewed 51 applications submitted by adult degree completion programs and short-term training providers across the United States, both within accredited postsecondary institutions and other training providers. MCCSC Adult Education was selected as one of 10 Coalition members because of its “commitment to providing innovative, relevant programs and services for adults,” according to Barry Nickerson, Director of Initiatives for the Council for Adult & Experiential Learning.
The purpose of the Coalition is to uncover the methods, resources, and supports that most significantly impact adult learner success and formulate them into the CAEL’s Principles for Effectively Serving Adult Learners.
MCCSC Adult Education will be represented by its director, Robert Moore, and up to 5 adult learners from the program yet to be named. In response to the invitation, Moore commented, “Our program is honored to have been selected to participate in this important work of improving service to adult learners. Our staff works very hard to ensure that adult learners in our community can meet their goals for education, training, and employment. We’re excited about this opportunity to learn from other successful adult education programs and share what we have done in Indiana and the Monroe County community.”
