Adult Education Services Again Available In Ketchikan


November 03, 2005

Ketchikan, Alaska - As of Wednesday, Ketchikan Indian Community (KIC) and the Southeast Regional Resource Center (SERRC) are working together to provide Adult Education Services training and testing to the Ketchikan community. During the past year, the community of Ketchikan lost the availability of these services due to remodeling projects within the University of Alaska Southeast and budget cutbacks. 

With the loss of Adult Education Services in Ketchikan, a person was required to travel to Juneau in order to obtain Adult Education training and testing.  As of November 2nd, people once again have this local educational resource at their disposal.
Quoting a KIC news release, "In the eyes of KIC, education has to be our first priority.  KIC leadership recognizes the challenges for people desiring to obtain Adult Education Services from all levels of the organization.  All parties involved are excited to see the service, a stepping stone to an individual's future, brought back to the community in a manner of cooperative effort.  SERRC provides the training and materials while KIC provides the space and technical support to ensure a successful and healthy atmosphere."
Fees for Alaska Natives and American Indians are covered by a grant, while all other students are required to pay a one time fee of $25.
