Adult Educational Services

WPBS-DT works in cooperation with the New York State Education Department, BOCES, and other education agencies to provide adults the opportunity to earn a high school diploma, develop literacy skills, focus on career skills, or learn English as a second language. These programs offer a supplement to the classroom instruction and workbook activities provided at local adult learning centers.
