JOHNSON COUNTY – The Arkansas Tech-Ozark Johnson County Adult Education center in Clarksville will be relocating to 18 Sherwood Plaza.  After twenty-one years on Cherry Street, the center has moved in order to provide better access and parking to students. 

The center will celebrate the new location with an Open House and Ribbon Cutting ceremony provided by the Clarksville – Johnson County Chamber of Commerce at 9 am on Monday, July 8, 2019.  The public is welcome to come and tour the new facility. 

Regina Olson, Adult Education director, worked with building owner, Tom Cogan, to secure the new location.

“We are very excited about our new location.  Not only is it larger, but it also provides an open concept that is more user friendly for students and staff.  The new location should also eliminate parking issues that we had at our last building. Additionally, we are happy that our employment and service partners, such as DHS, DWS, and Tech Staffing, are within walking distance to the new facility.”

In addition to GED® and English as a Second Language (ESL) classes, Adult Education offers classes to assist adults of all ages and educational background with improving their basic skills in reading, math, and language and computer and financial literacy to prepare students to enter postsecondary training and/or employment.  Certification programs are growing and include GED®, NCRC®, WAGE™, CNA, Pre-Apprenticeship in Industrial Manufacturing, and Microsoft Office® User certifications.  Arkansas Tech – Ozark Adult Education also provides opportunities for students to obtain free college credit.  Students can enroll in classes by contacting their local center.

Registration for summer classes at the new location will take place July 2nd and 3rd, with classes starting on July 8th.
