Please refrain from registering for upcoming classes at this time. Instead, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and indicate which class(es) you would like to attend, and we will add you to the registration list. We will then contact you when new class dates are set. At that time, we can make arrangements for payment options. Thank you!
PVAEC Adult Education is most concerned and committed to the health and safety of our students and community. We recognize that as an adult education program, our learners are adults, and may be more susceptible to the health risks associated with COVID-19. To that end, we are following the guidance of our local school districts, the Maine CDC and the World Health Organization. Our program and all learning centers are now closed in an effort to support social distancing and slow the spread of COVID-19.
All Enrichment classes are now postponed. Registered students will be contacted when new dates are set. If you prepaid for a class not yet begun, please be patient. If you are unable to attend when the class is rescheduled, we can offer you a credit towards a future class (to be used by Dec 31, 2020) or reimburse your registration fee minus the processing fee for online registrations. Registration refunds made by mail, check or cash will take 2+ weeks for processing. If you wish to discontinue a class that already began, we can offer you a pro-rated credit towards a future class (to be used by Dec 31, 2020).
The most up-to-date information about PVAEC can be found online at www.pvaec.org or on our FACEBOOK page. All PVAEC staff will be working remotely and answering emails during this time.

For more information about COVID-19, the Maine CDC and 211 Maine announced a new option for Mainers to get answers to questions about COVID-19 at any time. This service is available by dialing 211 (or 1-866-811-5695), texting your ZIP code to 898-211, or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
This two-hour awareness session will bring attendees into compliance with the recent law (LD 609) that requires all Maine school employees to receive basic suicide prevention education. The program is designed to raise awareness about suicide risk factors and warning signs and to provide information on what practical steps to take if suicide is suspected. While focused on students and youth, the information and skills you will learn are appropriate for use with anyone who might be feeling suicidal, no matter what their age. Students who attend say they feel much more confident and comfortable talking about suicide. The workshop will be conducted by Walter Boomsma who is Gatekeeper trained and NAMI (National Alliance for Mental Illness) Certified Mental Health Specialist for Youth and Adults. He is also an experienced educator and substitute elementary school teacher.
Space is limited; preference will be given to students who have completed Boomsma's Substitute Teacher Training Course.
Call today to get on the waitlist, or register for Substitute Teacher Training HERE.
