AN ACT CONCERNING ADULT EDUCATION AND TRANSITION TO COLLEGE

SUMMARY: This act allows adult education programs to offer college preparatory classes for adults who (1) have either a high school diploma or its equivalent and (2) require post-high school developmental education, in order to help them directly enroll at a higher education institution after completing the program. The local or regional board of education offering these classes may charge participants a fee. Existing law requires each local or regional board of education to have its own program of adult education classes or enter a cooperative arrangement with another board of education or regional educational service center to provide such a program.

EFFECTIVE DATE: July 1, 2013
