How will we sustain this???
• Multiple ways!
• Replace ABT with GED
• Plus one more funding source
– Foundation scholarships?
– Self-pay
– AE funds?
• Reduce team teaching overlap over time – keep finger on the pulse of need
• Use full-time staff
• Blend populations
• Take advantage of not “purging”
Lessons Learned …
• Learning Communities pay off
• Team Teaching and the right staff KEY
• Team planning pays off
• Administrative support ESSENTIAL
• Ability to Benefit works – adult education students CAN do it!
• Value of college credit affirmed by students
• Having to be in class makes all of life more productive
• Having the tools necessary is important and difficult to fund
