OLR Bill Analysis

sHB 6562

AN ACT CONCERNING ADULT EDUCATION AND TRANSITION TO COLLEGE.

SUMMARY:

This bill adds a curriculum option for adult education programs. It 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 an institution of higher education after completing the program. By law, each local or regional board of education must have its own program of adult classes, or it must enter a cooperative arrangement with another board of education or regional educational service center to provide such a program.
