Adult Education Courses
Facts to Keep in Mind about Concurrently Enrolled Students
- Although concurrently enrolled students may participate in the program, the program must be designed primarily for adults and must not supplant the high school program. No more than 10% of the district’s total ADA for all pupils in grades 9-12 can be claimed by the adult education program (EC 52616.17)(c)(2).
- Concurrently enrolled students, as all adult students, may attend classes in facilities that do not meet Field Act requirements.
- No course required by the district for high school graduation or needed for maintaining satisfactory academic progress shall be offered exclusively through Adult Education.
- Generally, concurrently enrolled students take classes to make up graduation deficits. Students also may take classes that supplement and enrich (215.5) EC 52523(d)(2)(4).
