New Home School 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.
