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/WAGE Program participated in the Sherwood Holiday Parade on Saturday, December 5th!
The theme was an “American Christmas” and the first parade that we have ever entered was a success! Thanks to all of our volunteers and their families who helped decorate and marched in the parade handing out candy to everyone. We had special candy canes with Pulaski County’s information just for adults. At the end, the parade announcer mentioned our program, along with what we offer and how great of a program it is! Everyone had fun and it’s an excellent way to advertise and to be a part of the community.
