Action Plan

The Adult Education Program was previously offered to families two times a week; the program will now be available to all families 4 times a week with the expectation that GED graduation rates will increase as well as educational gains. The Family Center will partner with Head Start and Judy Center to offer a 24/7 dads parenting curriculum with a goal of having 12 dads complete the 6 week program and increase father enrollment in the GED program. Teaching Strategies GOLD assessment system will be used for assessing children from birth through kindergarten to evaluate children on school readiness standards.
