Adult Education- Meeting Community Needs

A gem in the Nevada County educational community is Adult Education. “Adult Ed” is provided by the Nevada Joint Union High School District and meets the needs of many residents whether they are seeking a high school diploma, a General Education Development Certificate (GED), learning the English language, or seeking employment certifications.
Anita Bagwell, Director of Alternative Education and Principal of the district’s Adult Ed program is responsible for the various offerings throughout Nevada county. One program that is especially successful is the GED/Diploma program offered through a partnership at the Wayne Brown Correctional Facility.

Ms. Bagwell is quick to credit program successes to her teachers. Teachers that are dedicated to the cause, and seek to help adults move from where they are to where they want to be.
Any resident 18 years of age or older is eligible for Adult Education courses.

Thank you for the opportunity to talk about services available to adults in our county! I appreciate the time and concern you gave to me to let me speak about this small adult school within our county. I hope that we can assist other adults with the free educational resources that we provide through Nevada Union Adult Education.
Thanks, Paul!
