MCC's Adult Education Program Earns Performance Funding

mcc3 300HOPKINS COUNTY, Ky. (10/30/13) - Madisonville Community College President Judith L. Rhoads is pleased to announce that the college’s adult education programs in Hopkins County and Muhlenberg County have been awarded performance funding by the Kentucky Adult Education. Awards will be added to the current year contract; for the Hopkins County program, an additional $13,176 will be received and $7,878 will be received by the Muhlenberg County program.
 
Cris Crowley, Director of MCC’s Adult Education Program, shared “Our program and student success is a direct result of the dedication and expertise of our instructors. We try very hard to ensure that every student has the access and opportunity to reach their potential. GED attainment is just the first step toward entering postsecondary education and/or the workforce. The students’ goals are our goals; our job is to help them achieve it.”
 
Each year, county programs are placed into one of three program performance categories based on final enrollment and performance data for the previous fiscal year. The three performance categories are Excellence, Proficient, and Needs Improvement. MCC’s Hopkins County and Muhlenberg County adult education programs ranked in the Proficient category – meeting 70.4% and 69.8% respectively of their enrollment goals, exceeding their 54% academic performance goal by more than 7 percentage points during the 2012-2013 fiscal year, and meeting 80.8% and 64.5% respectively of their GED goals.
