How can I prove I took a course at Acalanes Adult Education?
Upon request, a certificate of hours attended will be provided. When the class is a part of the Adult Secondary Education Program, a transcript showing units and grades earned can be provided. Requests for attendance verification need to be made within one year of the class.
Are textbooks used?
Adult Secondary Education classes may use texts that the student is responsible to purchase. Most ESL classes use texts which are in the classroom. Many world language classes, and a few other classes such as computers, have texts. The teacher will provide the information on what texts will be used at the first class. AAE may order some texts for students to purchase. It is strongly recommended that texts not be purchased until after attending the first class to verify both that the class is appropriate and how much the teacher plans to use the text. There are no refunds for texts purchased.
Why are there so many personal questions on the registration form?
Acalanes Adult Education receives state support for some of its classes. The State of California requires the data requested on the students attending these classes. The State looks at the data in total, not individually, to understand what types of students attend adult education classes in California as a whole.
Is Acalanes Adult Education accredited?
Acalanes Adult Education is approved by the California Department of Education and complies with its rules and regulations. It is not accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges. All adult schools in California are administered through the K-12 program.
