Chancellor Seeks Proposals to Expand Ohio Education Network That Puts Adults on Path to College Degrees
COLUMBUS – Ohio Board of Regents Chancellor Eric D. Fingerhut today announced the availability of state and federal funds for the provision of adult basic and literacy education services. Two requests for proposals (RFPs) were issued seeking bids from local education agencies and public and private nonprofit agencies including community-based organizations, volunteer literacy organizations, institutions of higher education, libraries, public housing authorities, and other nonprofit agencies. The intent of the RFPs is to establish a network of adult literacy providers to offer adults a variety of options to pursue basic skills, English language acquisition, General Educational Development (GED) preparation, post-secondary education and education related to employment. The Chancellor wants to offer classes on and off college campuses and in a variety of formats, including distance learning.
