Pulaski County Adult Education is happy to announce the opening of our new Jacksonville Career Center (formerly WAGE) in Crestview Plaza. An Open House and Ribbon Cutting with the Jacksonville Chamber of Commerce was held on Thursday, Sept. 19, 2019.
The new center is located at 2A Crestview Plaza in Jacksonville and is open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., Monday through Thursday.
Thanks to Mr. Shaun Sanders, Customer Operations Manager at AmeriPride Linen & Uniform Services, for speaking with our students at Goodwill Little Rock today about interviewing skills, what it takes to get and keep a job, and soft skills!
As seen on KARK’s story at the link above, Mr. Howard is a great success story! He earned his Career Readiness Certification (CRC) through our adult education classes offered at Goodwill Industries of Arkansas while participating in their Transitional Employment Opportunity (TEO) Program.

The Pulaski County Special School District Adult Education Program is starting a new Home School Program!
This program will be designed to help both the student and the parent and/or guardian. Our goals are to have the student pass the GED or obtain a High School Diploma as well as help parents with instruction to guide their child while they are off campus or at home. We will provide one classroom for the home school student and one for the parent or guardian. Both rooms will have teachers and computers to help aid instruction.
The Pulaski County Adult Education Program offers free instruction to adults functioning between 3rd and 12th-grade levels. The program helps improve students’ educational skills, prepare for the GED Tests, or for standardized college entrance exams. The program is certified through the Pulaski County Special School District.
There are several essential programs available through Pulaski County Adult Education. It is essential for high school dropouts to obtain a GED for job placement and advancement. The WAGE Program (Workforce Alliance for Growth in the Economy) provides FREE training and basic skills improvement for those who need to update their skills for what is required in today’s ever-changing job market. English as a Second Language (ESL) classes are offered for immigrants who wish to improve both their oral and written English language skills.
In keeping with the guidelines on Title Vi, Section 602, Civil Rights Act of 1964; Title IX, Section 901, Educational Amendments of 1972; and Section 504 of Rehabilitation Act of 1973, the Pulaski County Adult Education Center assures that no person in the United States shall, on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex, or handicap, be excluded from the participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subject to discrimination under any program.
