The majority of the American population is made up of adults, yet little attention is paid to providing adults with educational opportunities. In this paper, the author describes the importance of providing continuing education to improve adults’ lives, job prospects, and experiences. He suggests that the public school is the idea facility for providing this education, as it already has both the staff and the physical resources to do so. To that end, the author compiles and analyzes the component parts for establishing an adult education program in the town of Greece, NY. First, he examines and analyzes needed and available financial resources. Then he examines the planning process, including staffing, operations, public promotion, and program evaluation. Finally, he includes the documentation used by the Greece Public School to start their adult education program, including brochures and course list.
