Do you need your GED? Do you want to brush up on your math skills?
The Sallisaw Adult Learning Center is offering free classes for anyone in Sequoyah and Adair counties.
The center, 312 S Walnut, is an authorized GED test site with year-round open enrollment. It has been affiliated with Sallisaw Public Schools for more than 40 years, Beverly Sizemore, a teacher at the center, said.
Sizemore said Tuesday that the site offers one-on-one tutoring and a computer lab for studying.
The goal at the adult education center, Sizemore said, is to serve 100 people per school year. Last year, the center served 80.
The Sallisaw Adult Learning Center is one of the first 10 such programs in Oklahoma. It serves students from age 18 up into their 70s. Sizemore said the center does accept students ages 16-17 but their parents are required to sign and notarize a form giving the teen their permission.
Sizemore said morning classes are from 8 a.m. to noon Monday through Thursday. Morning classes are led by teachers Judy Blair and Pam Davis. Sizemore teaches evening classes which are from 4:30-7:30 p.m. Mondays and Tuesdays.
