The COVID 19 crisis has placed a strain on our ABE students and teaching community.  LAN is concerned about the impact of school closures due to COVID 19 on Adult Basic Education programs.  In order to hold programs harmless from this unprecedented disruption in service, we propose an amendment to the LAN 2020 legislative platform.

Click HERE to review the new platform which focuses on three issues:

 1) Changing the contact hours reporting period for this year

2) Asking for a supplementary funding request for next year, given likely significant growth in learners

3) Fixing the growth factor

We are humbly asking you, our LAN members, to join us in a call to action.  Please contact your state house and senate representatives to urge them to support ABE by giving us funding and flexibility during this challenging time.
