Adult-Ed director attains
Janice Crane, director of Jessamine County Adult Education and Family Literacy Program, has recently become a Certified Manager in Program Improvement through the Leadership Excellence Academy. The national certification is the first of its kind in the adult-education and literacy field. To receive the credential, academy participants must meet the requirements of an intensive two-year training program and complete a program-improvement project within their organizations or agencies. Kentucky is one of only nine states in which adult educators have achieved this national certification. The Leadership Excellence Academy was developed by the National Adult Education Professional Development Consortium and ProLiteracy to support continuous improvement and high-quality educational services for adult learners.
