FAIRFIELD — Last week it was National Adult Education and Family Literacy Week, and at the Fairfield-Suisun Adult School that celebration has a lot of meaning.
Principal Kay Hartley certainly thinks so.
The Adult School faced some devastating cuts last year including several staff layoffs and the near dissolution of the English as a Second Language program. The Fairfield-Suisun School Board cut $862,607, nearly all of the Adult School’s budget.
The board did, however, change some language in its motion so that the Adult School could bring back programs if it found outside funding from grants or other sources.
