cuts threaten adult program at SCC
Although participation in the Adult Education
Program through the Southeastern Career Center has increased,
Adult Ed Coordinator Tricia Johnson reported that possible budget
cuts threaten the existence of the program at the regular board
meeting on Wednesday, March 10.
This greatly bothers me, said SCC Director Brad Street.
This is affecting a group with no voice.
Currently, Johnson has not received a notice of funding from the
State. Therefore, Reduction in Funding forms for adult education
instructors will be addressed at the April meeting, according
The adult education contracts for the second phase, split due
to funding issues, were unanimously approved by the board.
