Definition of an Adult Student
Education Code defines “adult” as a person beyond the age of compulsory school attendance and who is not concurrently enrolled in a comprehensive high school or compulsory education program.
Concurrently Enrolled Students
Adult schools must follow the intent of the law. Adult Education’s first priority is to serve adults. Classes must be advertised for adults and be offered at times and locations convenient for adults. Adults must receive preference for enrollment. Classes shall be under the supervision and jurisdiction of the adult education administrator. A high school student can be counted as concurrently enrolled only if he or she is enrolled for the minimum day at a regular high school or continuation or opportunity school before enrollment in an adult education program, course or class (EC52523, 52500.1).
