OFTC Adult Education Recognized at State Conference | Schools
Oconee Fall Line Technical College's Adult Education staff recently attended the 2012 Georgia Adult Education Fall Conference in Atlanta. The theme for this year’s conference was “Creating a Workforce for Georgia and a Future for Families”.
Adult Education administrators, instructors and GED testing staff participated in professional development classes, an awards luncheon and adult education planning meetings. The Conference covered current issues including the 2014 revised GED Test, building collaborative partners and a Certified Literate Community, teaching strategies, strategies for implementing technology in the classroom, and strategies for addressing adult education needs in counties with 30% or more of the population without a secondary diploma.
The Oconee Fall Line Technical College (OFTC) Adult Education Program was recognized during the awards reception for “Exceeding the Fiscal Year 2012 Educational Gain Benchmarks”. This honor recognizes the achievement of the staff in meeting or exceeding all goals set for Adult Basic Education and Adult Secondary Education classes as negotiated with the federal government and set by the State of Georgia.
“There is nothing that this group of professionals cannot accomplish by working as a team and serving our students through educational excellence," said OFTC's Dean of Adult Education Saketha Williams. "It is all about serving our students and meeting their needs.”
