The Austin Adult Learning Program is expanding its services to assist adults who are considering post secondary education and want to improve their math or reading.  Each class is one hour long four days a week and designed for anyone 18 years and older who want to prepare themselves to be successful at the college level.  The classes are held on the campus of Riverland Community College and are free.

The Math Clinic focuses on skills that help students be successful at college level math classes. These include fractions, multiplication/division, percentages, geometry and algebra.  The Reading Class is designed to help students improve both their reading rate and comprehension through activities and lessons done at the level of each student.

The Math Clinic is held Monday through Thursday from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m. The Reading Clinic is being offered directly after this Monday through Thursday from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. The next class term will begin Nov. 12 and run through Jan. 15. Registration will take place on Nov.10 between 3:30 and 6 p.m. in room C110 in the east building of Riverland Community College.
