Classes are in session at the Minot Adult Learning Cen- ter, even though it was forced to move after being flooded this summer.
Director Jennifer Kraft said the Adult Learning Center has been alloted three trailers which have been set up on the grounds of Jefferson Early Childhood Center at 1101-37th St. SE.
On Wednesday an English as a Second Language class was in session in one class and GED testing was going on in other quarters.

"This is very nice," said Kraft of the classrooms in the trailers, which provide offices, classroom space and some multipurpose areas. The school district did everything possible to make it as pleasant an environment as possible. Kraft said she does find the new location quiet and misses being able to hear what was going on outside her office.
In some cases the Adult Learning Center might have to offer its programs on a smaller scale, but it is offering English as a Second Language and GED classes and some computer classes. The ACES program, which enables people to brush up on their career skills, is also in session.
Some Minot Public Schools community education classes are also being offered, though some swimming classes had to be eliminated because they lost the pool at Erik Ramstad Middle School, where the classes had been offered. Ramstad also flooded this summer. Kraft said some of the community education classes will be held at different buildings in the district.
The Adult Learning Center has wireless capability in its new quarters but the district is still working on laying fiber optics to provide Internet access for the whole facility.
