Literacyworks has been awarded the grant for the Literacy Information and Communication System (LINCS) Regional Professional Development Center for Region 4 (RPDC) which includes Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, Utah, Washington, Wyoming, Guam, American Samoa, the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, and the Republic of Palau.
The U.S. Department of Education’s Office of Vocational and Adult Education (OVAE) recently announced the results of its recent competitions for LINCS. OVAE’s continued investment in LINCS signals its intent to more strategically utilize LINCS, for assisting states and local adult education agencies in promoting teacher effectiveness and evidence-based instruction in adult education.
As a regional professional development center, Literacyworks will work with states to deploy evidence-based materials and professional development activities to the field of adult education. The regions are realigned to correspond with OVAE’s administrative regions, under the Adult Education and Family Literacy Act (AEFLA).
