The System for Adult Basic Education Support (SABES) is the ABE professional development (PD) system of the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education, Adult, and Community Learning Services unit. Since 1990, SABES has been essential to the advancement of the Adult Basic Education (ABE) system in Massachusetts, providing effective leadership and support to ABE programs, practitioners, and learners across the state. The current system includes eight centers, each providing PD on a specific topic. Holyoke Community College hosts the SABES PD Center for SMARTT and Cognos, the state’s ABE data management system. HCC also has sub-contracts with Quinsigamond Community College for both the SABES PD Center for English for Speakers of Other Languages and the SABES PD Center for Educational Leadership and Strengthening ABE Programs.
