TCC receives $398,556 in adult education grant awards

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (September 4, 2013) – Tallahassee Community College has received $398,556 in grants from the Florida Department of Education (FDOE) to provide adult education and family literacy programs in Leon, Gadsden and Wakulla counties.

The one-year awards include:  $85,515 to provide General Education Diploma (GED) services in Leon County; $136,466 to provide GED services in Gadsden County; $28,711 to provide English literacy and civics education services in Gadsden County; $117,352 to provide GED services at correctional facilities in Gadsden County; and $30,512 to provide GED services at correctional facilities in Wakulla County. 

The focus of the TCC Adult Education program is to improve basic reading, writing and computing skills for individuals preparing for the GED exam and seeking to improve their workforce skills. Instruction is provided on the main campus at TCC’s Gadsden and Wakulla county service centers and at off-campus sites in collaboration with community partners.

The funds will be managed by TCC Division of Workforce Development and will allow TCC to serve nearly 600 individuals in the three-county area.

“We are looking forward to addressing the adult education needs that exist in Leon, Gadsden and Wakulla counties,” said Kimberly Moore, vice president of workforce development. 

The grant program is funded through the federal Workforce Investment Act Title II: Adult Education and Family Literacy Act. 

“This measure will provide supplemental funds for adult basic education, high school subjects, English as a second language, citizenship, English literacy and civics education,” said Harriett Abrams, adult education program coordinator.

Grantees must gather information on the learners, take attendance, assess their progress and measure other objectives to prove students are completing and learning the coursework. The money may be used for teacher salaries, textbooks, instructional supplies, facilities maintenance, childcare and transportation for learners.

For information about participation in these programs, please contact the TCC Division of Workforce Development at (850) 201-8760 or at workforce@tcc.fl.edu.
