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.
