EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE) - Two programs from the EVSC Adult Education Service are being transferred to Vincennes University, and the EVSC will stop offering those programs.

Classes aren't being affected now, the changes will be taking place the second part of the school year.

Beginning in Spring, Vincennes University will be taking over the EVSC's GED and English as a Second Language Adult Programs.

This is also the last semester for the Adult Enrichment Program.

It will no longer be offered through EVSC after December.

District officials said their adult education programs have grown over the years and the change reflects that.

"Our primary goal, our primary focus is pre-school through 12th grade education," EVSC spokesperson Marsha Jackson said. "We've offered those classes for a number of years and at the time we first started offering them there were no other options in town. Now there are many options and we don't feel we need to duplicate those efforts and we need to put our finances into our primary focus."

The classes will still be conducted at the Southern Indiana Career and Technical Center until Vincennes University finds another location for the classes.
