Adult Literacy

Important Update

Due to COVID-19, all of our classes are "hybrid" classes until it is safe to go back to our regular in-person classes. Our hybrid classes have set times that meet online as a class; however, we are allowed to meet with students face-to-face individually or in small groups with all mandatory health precautions (i.e., masks, social distancing, staying home if feeling ill, etc.).  If a student has health issues that keep them home, we can also work with students virtually until it is deemed safe to return.  All students also have access to online distance learning platforms so they can work outside of class whenever it is convenient.

2020-2021 Programs
