Iowa Department of Education
The Division of Community Colleges of the Iowa Department of Education has a variety of diverse programs that enhance Iowa's educational system. Adult Education has a rich history in Iowa of providing services that assist adults in improving their skills, achieving their educational goals, and transitioning to further education or employment. Instruction is designed for adults functioning at the lowest levels of basic skills and English language instruction to advanced levels of learning. As defined by Title II of the Workforce Investment Act (WIA), Adult Education enables adults to: (1) become literate and obtain the knowledge and skills necessary for employment and self sufficiency; (2) obtain the educational skills necessary to become full partners in the educational development of their children; and (3) complete a secondary school education. Adult Education offers solutions. Adult Education's history of responding to learner needs is critical during these challenging times. Whether a learner's goals are related to personal self improvement, family literacy, further training, or employment, under educated adults in Iowa need a system that provides clear pathways and support. The Department of Education, Division of Community Colleges prepared this report in response to the Skilled Iowa and Job Creation Fund for the state appropriation for Adult Basic Education and Adult Literacy Programs (260C.50) This report was coordinated by the Department with the assistance of Iowa's fifteen community colleges. The figures noted in this report were obtained from each of Iowa's fifteen community colleges.
