Student Eligibility
The SAISD Adult & Community Education Program provides instructional services below the postsecondary level for individuals who:

  • are at least 18 years of age
  • are not enrolled or required to be enrolled in secondary school under state law
  • lack sufficient mastery of basic educational skills or,
  • do not have a secondary school diploma or its recognized equivalent or,
  • are unable to speak, read, or write the English language

Students age 17 need the following documentation to enroll in classes:

  • Official withdrawal papers from their last school attended
  • Letter granting the student permission to attend classes from their legal guardian

In addition to the above listed documents, students age 16 require:

  • Court order documentation stating student is required to attend class

Student Registration
All students wishing to attend classes must register before they attend their first class meeting. Students may register in person at the location of the class attending. Students must bring photo identification and any other required documentation.

Student Orientation
The SAISD Adult Education staff recognizes that enrolling in GED®, ABE, or ESL classes is a new chapter in the lives of students. In an effort to direct and assist students in making good decisions, setting realistic goals, answer questions, and address concerns, the program has developed an orientation for newly enrolled students.

The student orientation session provides program information and introduces skills for student success. Attending the orientation is required before a student is enrolled into class.

Assessment and Placement
Prior to attending class, students are administered an initial assessment. The assessments utilized are the Test of Adult Basic Education (TABE) for students enrolling into GED and the Basic English Skills Test (BEST) for ESL students. One of the main purposes for assessment in adult education is for proper placement of students in the appropriate class level within the program.

Academic Advising
In order for students to properly set goals and create a realistic vision for personal success and transition to college and the workforce, it is necessary to engage in frequent and meaningful discussion on a one-to-one basis with students. Each student is academically advised by their instructor periodically to ensure that students continue on their desired continuing education path.
