Alexandria Public Schools Community Education assumes responsibility for Adult Basic Education volunteers
The Alexandria Literacy Project Board has voted unanimously to dissolve the Alexandria Literacy Project on December 31. As a result of the dissolution, Alexandria Public Schools Community Education will assume responsibility for the majority of the volunteer program under the Adult Basic Education (ABE) program. Community Education statute states that ABE programs should train and use volunteers in the Adult Basic Education. It is common in Minnesota for community education programs to support volunteer programs.
