The ACCES-Adult Education Team is holding informational meetings in September. Every program coordinator or his/her designee of ACCES-adult education funded programs (WIOA, ALE, EPE, WEP) is required to attend. The focus will be to provide comments and input on the proposed WIOA combined state plan, with a special emphasis on changes in Title II programming. WIOA is already one year old, and we are beginning to learn more about the changes that may be necessary for our programs. This meeting is also an opportunity to share the information we currently have about WIOA and solicit comments and concerns from our local programs. Other updates from ACCES-adult education will be provided.
Program staff must register as seating is limited. We expect a representative from every program to be in attendance. More information and a formal agenda will be released before September 1st.

International Literacy Day will be celebrated on September 8th, 2015. Communities around the world will bring attention to those who cannot read or write.
Approximately 775 million people- 64% of whom are women- are functionally illiterate. In other words, they lack the basic reading and writing skills to manage daily living and employment tasks. In 1965, UNESCO declared September 8 as International Literacy Day. Since this proclamation, schools, organizations and communities around the world have united to promote awareness with the hope to one day eradicate this ongoing human rights violation.
