Welcome to the beginning of the FCLC 2016-17 Program year. Now is the time to begin implementing the new tracking forms we will be using. If you have not yet received an email containing these forms, please contact Sue (email@example.com). You should begin using these forms as soon as you receive them. If you have any questions regarding their use, or anything else, we are happy to help!
In other news, it’s time to mark your calendars with two very important upcoming events. August 27th is the Path to Literacy Character Walk in conjunction with Coyle Free Library. This will be a fun family event, so invite your neighbors and friends. Also, there will be a Professional Development Training for tutors on September 17th at the West Commerce street location. We encourage you to attend both very beneficial events.
We hope you’re all having a wonderful summer!

Ideas and resources for encouraging persistence with learning
The New England Literacy Resource Center’s Adult Learner Persistence website has many resources that programs and teachers can use to encourage student persistence with learning. The site includes a program self-assessment, as well as resources and strategies that can be used to support students staying in the program long enough to reach their goals. A recording of Pennsylvania’s Persistence Network webinar is also available online.
