How does it work?

Adult education services or instruction below post-secondary level are available for individuals who:

  • Are 16 years or older.
  • Are not enrolled or required to be enrolled in secondary school under state law.
  • Lack sufficient mastery of basic educational skills enabling him/her to function effectively in society.
  • Do not have a secondary diploma or its recognized equivalent, and have not achieved an equivalent level of education.
  • Are unable to speak, read, write the English language.

All students must complete a multi-step orientation process. Students are familiarized with the program, how they will work and what is expected of them. The student will complete an assessment to establish an Educational Functional Level and an education plan is created based on the student’s goals. Students are empowered through the creation of individual Smarter plans, aligned to career goals, coupled with the use of strategies that they can use both in academic settings as well in the workforce. Various approaches are used to assist students in understanding their to-date accomplishments.

The Wyoming Adult Education programs offer a wide variety of courses to help students achieve their career goals. These include Adult Education and Career Pathways programs of study. Qualified Adult Education students are eligible to concurrently enroll in Career Pathways Explorations and Trainings (CPET), Career and Technical Education (CTE), and Transitions to College courses while enrolled in other Adult Education classes.
