Bureau of Adult Education

The Bureau of Adult Education provides grants to school districts and private not-for-profit organizations for the purposes of offering educational services to adults who have not received a high school diploma or high school equivalency certificate, or who need to improve basic skills in reading, math, writing, and English language learning.

Local adult education programs serve adult learners whose skills range from very basic to high school level. Adults are eligible for enrollment in any program supported by the Bureau of Adult Education if they
