The Governing Board believes that education is a lifelong process and that it is important for individuals to continuously develop new skills. Eligible adults shall be offered opportunities to enroll in programs and courses that develop academic and workforce skills and, as appropriate, lead to completion of requirements for high school graduation.

The Superintendent or designee shall recommend, for approval by the Board and the California Department of Education, courses to be offered through the district's adult education program.

To ensure efficient and coordinated adult education services, the district shall collaborate with other local educational agencies and the community college district in the region's adult education consortium. The district shall participate in the consortium's identification of the educational needs of adults in the region, identification of available funding and services, development and approval of an adult education plan pursuant to Education Code 84906, and implementation of strategies to address the identified needs, improve the effectiveness of district services, and improve students' transitions into postsecondary education and the workforce.

The district's representative to the region's adult education consortium shall be designated by the Board. (Education Code 84905)

(cf. 9140 - Board Representatives)

The Superintendent or designee shall ensure that all teachers of adult education classes possess an appropriate credential issued by the Commission on Teacher Credentialing and have access to high-quality professional development to continuously enhance their knowledge and skills.

(cf. 4112.2 - Certification)

(cf. 4131 - Staff Development)

Adult education classes may be offered any day or evening, including weekends, for such length of time during the school year as determined by the Board. (Education Code 52505, 52513)

1. At least one term in the adult elementary program

Adult education students who fulfill the district's graduation requirements shall receive a diploma of high school graduation.
