Rhode Island Adult Basic Education Performance Improvement

To further Rhode Island's goal of increasing jobs and job readiness in the state, the GPL supported the Rhode Island Department of Education in reforming their adult education services to create a more coordinated provision of trainings and supplemental supports to improve employment outcomes. This work included:

  1. Conducting a comprehensive analysis of demand and the historical performance of various adult education services,

  2. Connecting with stakeholders to understand challenges and desired changes in the existing system, and

  3. Development of an RFI that explored opportunities to strengthen contextualized instruction models that integrate workforce preparation and training with adult education.
