New students have one final chance to register for spring GED or ESL classes at either the Durango or Cortez Adult Education Center.
The Durango Adult Education Center is a proud partner of #MoveAheadWithAdultEd, a new national pandemic recovery campaign enrolling adult learners into career training programs that equip them with skills that lead to jobs paying a family-sustaining wage.
The campaign targets the millions of Americans who need to reskill, upskill, or fill an educational gap in order to re-enter the workforce.
Enrollment for Session 4 classes kicks off March 1st and runs through March 12th.
Live, tailored classes take place online with targeted tutoring available from award-winning teachers.
Now’s the best time to move ahead and recover financially from the pandemic.

La Plata County COVID cases are currently in the Orange Level on the COVID-19 Dial.
As a result, Pearson Vue testing will increase the number of testing workstations from two to three.
We encourage all testers to learn about remote “at-home” testing as an alternative to testing at our center.
Find more information on Pearson Vue’s remote option for testing called “OnVue” here: https://home.pearsonvue.com/Test-takers/OnVUE-online-proctoring.aspx.
ESL and GED (HSE) classes at the Durango and Cortez sites will continue remotely.
