Maine Adult Education Director's Handbook, 2004.
Maine Department of Education
The Maine Adult Education Directors' Handbook offers a basic overview of the Adult and Community Education system in Maine. The information is general and intended to provide a background to the person initially becoming involved in adult education--director, teacher, school board member, advisory council member or superintendent. The Handbook is also designed to be a handy "desk reference" for the busy adult education professional, most especially the program director, giving the basics and referencing additional resources. The Philosophy Statement sets the tone; the Glossary introduces the common acronyms which so frustrate individuals new to the field; and the Chart of State Administrative Structure establishes a framework. Program definitions briefly describe the purpose, scope, funding and enabling legislation of each program area in adult and community education. Sections of the Manual include: (1) General Information; (2) Program Areas; and (3) Processes and Procedures. Various forms are appended.
