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.
