Carroll County Public Schools Adult Education Program was notified recently that it was rated as one of the top four programs in Virginia.
The adult program was evaluated on financial management, target performance and policy compliance. Carroll Countys program had high ratings in all categories and a perfect score in policy compliance. As a result of this evaluation, the Carroll County Adult Education Program was able to apply for and has received incentive grant funds.
This grant enables the Carroll program to offer site classes for an additional month, as well as hire more part-time instructors during this summer. The grant will also allow the program to update with several new computers, books and materials.
