ADULT CAREER TRAINING CORP. REPRESENTATIVES TO ADDRESS HOUSE SUBCOMMITTEE ON K-12 EDUCATION

 ADULT CAREER TRAINING CORP. REPRESENTATIVES
 TO ADDRESS HOUSE SUBCOMMITTEE ON K-12 EDUCATION
 Employees, students and other supporters of Adult Career Training Corp. (ACT) Wednesday, May 20, will address the House Subcommittee on K-12 Education in response to a state auditor general's preliminary report the company says is inaccurate and misleading.
 The ACT representatives will argue against a report prepared last month by Michigan Auditor General Thomas McTavish which suggested that school districts' arrangements with private firms to provide adult education do not give students


the career training they need and that contractors, such as ACT, "pad" student enrollment numbers to increase profits.
 Representatives of ACT will tell the committee that the report's allegations of enrollment fraud and program inadequacy are based on incomplete information and that the report likely would have been more accurate and less critical if auditors had taken more time to learn the methods used to administer the programs.
 ACT representatives will provide background about the company and its services, and they will defend the school districts' efforts to comply with state law and education department guidelines.
 ACT provides individual school districts with teachers, equipment and supplies for adult education programs in career-oriented classes such as computer applications, computer drafting, computerized bookkeeping, electronics, health care, heating and cooling and employability skills.
 The meeting is scheduled for 10 a.m. Wednesday in Room 404 of the state Capitol in Lansing.
 CONTACT: Susan Dennis of ACT, 313-932-5800; or Don Durocher or Mike Chapp of Durocher & Company, 313-259-7414, for ACT.
