The RAETAC System

The Office of Adult Education at the South Carolina Department of Education created four regional adult education technical assistance centers (RAETACs) to serve the technical and training needs of adult educators across the state. Each center is managed by a director who works closely with the adult education programs in that region to ensure that quality programs are in place. A fifth region was added in 2010, although in 2014 the structure returned to a four center system. Assistance can take the form of:

  • Training for program directors, instructional staff, testing coordinators, transition specialists, and database entry personnel
  • On-site training and support visits
  • Preparation for a program's formal evaluation
  • Coordination of special training events - assistance with conference fees, information, and logistics
  • Production of training and promotional materials
  • Region-wide marketing initiatives
  • Registration for graduate courses
