Developmental procedures, background information, alternatives, and results of four demonstration community education programs established by the Appalachian Adult Education Center are presented in the document. Community educational programs sponsored by the Appalachian Adult Education Center, its educational objectives, and a discussion of the population and geographic area of Appalachia are summarized. General methodology for setting up new programs is discussed, and includes the identification of community needs and resources and their contribution to the program, planning sessions, written agreement of objectives, and the leadership of an outside person. The four sites are (1) Scioto Valley Local School District, Piketon, Ohio; (2) Ashland City Schools, Ashland, Kentucky; (3) Owensboro Public Schools, Owensboro, Kentucky; and (4) Montgomery County Community Schools, Montgomery County, Kentucky. Individual organization, cost, activities, community background, and program effectiveness are discussed. Each program contains home study components and offers aspects of a family learning center, including basic academic skills concentrating on the ABE and GED tests, parent education, and career education. Tables and maps supplement the discussion. Preplanning information sheets, an agenda for a two day workshop, and program related material from Ashland, Montgomery County, and Owensboro are appended and constitute about one-fourth of the document.
