Davitt has drafted a resolution urging legislators to keep the
community college the main provider of noncredit adult education.
The resolution states that the proposed change would require many
K-12 districts to offer programs that are already administered by
community colleges and would impair the success of the program.
The program is designed to enable adults to continue their
education into full credit programs. About 500 students are enrolled
in noncredit classes and typically 1,700 students transition from
noncredit to credit classes each year, according to college reports.
