Cautionary Notice: As added and amended by SBX3 4 (Ch. 12, Third Extraordinary Session, Statutes of 2009), ABX4 2 (Ch. 2, Fourth Extraordinary Session, Statutes of 2009), and SB 70 (Ch. 7, Statutes of 2011), Education Code 42605 grants districts flexibility in "Tier 3" categorical programs. The Antelope Valley Union High School District has accepted this flexibility and thus is deemed in compliance with the statutory or regulatory program and funding requirements for these programs for the 2008-09 through 2014-15 fiscal years. As a result, the district may temporarily suspend certain provisions of the following policy or regulation that reflect these requirements. For further information, please contact the Superintendent or designee.
1. General Objectives
The general objectives of adult education shall be the same as those of other levels of public education, namely to prepare individuals for full democratic citizenship, to provide them with the means for economic improvement and cultural development and to enrich their personal and family lives.
2. Scope of Program
The extent to which the program shall be determined by a balance between community needs and the willingness of the district residents to provide for the program in the school district budget.
The program shall be administered by the Superintendent through appropriate staff personnel.
4. Financial Support
Adult education classes may be financed by any of the following means:
a. Contract courses with other districts.
b. Contract courses with county office.
c. Contract courses with state agencies.
d. Contact courses with federal agencies.
e. With monies received from state or federal sources.
f. With local tax revenue.
g. With combined funds from the above listed sources.
h. With funds provided by participants in community service classes.
The Board shall authorize instructors from lists submitted by the Superintendent or designee. Salaries shall be established annually based upon an hourly rate. Custodial service shall be rescheduled to accommodate the course offerings for adults.
6. Physical Facilities
All physical facilities of the school system shall be available for use in the adult education program when they do not conflict with day school activities. Activities shall not be limited to those that can be conducted in school buildings but may be conducted in other suitable locations after approval of the Board.
7. Basic Requirements for Courses
A course may be given only when the number of interested adults is sufficient to form a class of proper size, when a qualified teacher, adequate facilities and appropriate supervision can be made available. A class shall be discontinued if by its third meeting 20 persons are not in attendance. Classes which fail to meet this minimum enrollment may be continued at discretion of the Superintendent or designee pending first available Board action.
