In addition to these components, other specialized instructional areas include:

Family Literacy
  • Integrates all of the following activities:
  1. Interactive literacy activities between parents and their children,
  2. Training parents regarding how to be the primary instructor for their children and full partners in the education of their children,
  3. Parent literacy training that leads to economic self-sufficiency, and
  4. An age-appropriate education to prepare children for success in school and life experiences.
Workplace Literacy
  • Offered to help employees improve the basic skills specific to their job performance and to work on a GED or Adult High School Diploma.
Correctional Education
  • Assists incarcerated individuals in improving their basic skills and obtaining a GED diploma.

According to the Workforce Investment Act (WIA) of 1993, literacy is defined as:

“An individual’s ability to read, write, and speak in English, compute, and solve problems at levels of proficiency necessary to function on the job, in the family of the individual, and in society.”
