Literacy Volunteers and Adult Ed team up in Hancock County!

Ellsworth Adult Education and Literacy Volunteers of Bangor are partnered to deliver individualized literacy support to adults in Hancock County.  Community volunteers are needed to help fill this need.  If you enjoy teaching, coaching, and mentoring adults individually, then learn more about becoming a trained Literacy Volunteer and serving the local need through a local adult educaiton program in Hancock County.     For about an hour or two a week, you can help an adult work toward goals like:  a high school diploma, a driver's license, a better job, preparing for college, or reading to their children.  You can also provide tutoring and coaching to an English Language learner.  

For more information about local program and tutoring opportunities, please contact Annie Sargent at Ellsworth Adult Education 207.664.7110 or asargent@ellsworthschools.org.

Ellsworth Adult Ed Weather/Emergency Cancellations Protocols and Procedures


  

Weather/Emergency Cancellations Protocols and Procedures:

Ellsworth Adult Education staff and faculty want to ensure that all students remain safe in inclement weather. We wish we could contact each and every one of you when our classes, meetings and appointments are cancelled, but recognize this isn't always realistic.

I've answered a brief Q & A below...hopefully it will address most questions...if not feel free to email adultedinfo@ellsworthschools.org and/or call 207.664.7110 for more information.

--Annie Sargent, Adult Education Director, Ellsworth School District

 

When are Ellsworth Adult Education classes, meetings and appointments are cancelled?  

Since Ellsworth Adult Education is a department of Ellsworth School District our closures match the closures of Ellsworth Schools.

  1. If Ellsworth schools are cancelled for the day because of weather, adult education daytime and evening classes are also cancelled.
  2. If Ellsworth schools have early dismissal, then all adult education classes starting at 12 noon or later are cancelled.
  3. If Ellsworth schools after-school activities are cancelled, all adult education classes starting at 2:30pm or later are cancelled.
  4. If the weather forecast suggests deterioration of conditions during evening hours, then classes starting at 4pm or later will be cancelled.  This decision is made by 2pm.

How can you find out that classes, meetings and appointments are cancelled?

  1. Check the Ellsworth School District website www.ellsworthschools.org;
  2. Check the Ellsworth Adult Education website www.ellsworth.maineadulted.org;
  3. Check the Ellsworth Adult Education Facebook page;
  4. Look for announcements on WLBZ TV 2 and WABI TV 5 TV  stations;
  5. Subscribe to the WLBZ text alert service.  Local TV stations are now offering text alert services for late-breaking news, severe weather and school closings.   If you sign up for the text alerts, you will find out immediately that schools are closed. Sign-up is fast and easy.  For WLBZ go to: http://archive.wlbz2.com/weather/resources/text_alert/  There are other options, too!
  6. Call Ellsworth Adult Education at 664.7110.  If you try a couple of times and no one answers after 9am, then it's likely that we are closed and our classes are cancelled.  Our director can check messages left on the general mailbox and can sometimes return your call remotely. 

When will 'make up' classes be held?

A make-up date is included in the catalog description of each Ellsworth Adult Education enrichment class.   If additional make-up dates are required, the dates will be announced at the next class meeting.  

If you have questions about the protocols and procedures, don't hesitate to contact us at adultedinfo@ellsworthschools.org or 207.664.7110.
