The Adult High School (AHS) program enables an adult student, to complete the required courses and state assessments to earn a standard high school diploma. Course requirements in adult high school programs are designed in accordance with core content standards. A program of instruction for both traditional and co-enrolled AHS students shall be based on the Florida Department of Education (FDOE) adult education curriculum frameworks. Instructional methodologies may include, but are not limited to, traditional lecture instruction, competency- and performance-based adult education, distance learning and computer-assisted instruction. Adult general education programs are authorized by s. 1004.93, F.S., and defined as comprehensive instructional programs designed to improve the employability of the state's workforce through adult basic education, adult secondary education, English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL), applied academics for adult education instruction, and instruction for adults with disabilities in s. 1004.02(3), F.S. The AHS curriculum framework is correlated to the Florida Standards, and courses offered are the same as those offered in the K-12 school system. The FDOE AHS curriculum frameworks provide a minimum set of standards to be used by all facilitators delivering AHS education programs. AHS education includes both adult high school diploma programs and co-enrollment courses of study. Students in the AHS program must meet all state and local graduation requirements for a standard high school diploma, unless otherwise noted in this guide. Provided is information for adult high schools regarding the following topics: (1) enrollment criteria; (2) tuition and out-of-state fees; (3) assessing students for National Reporting System (NRS) reporting; (4) accountability and reporting; (5) graduation requirements; (6) statewide assessments; (7) assessment requirements for students with disabilities; (8) transfer of credit guidelines; (9) diploma/completion options; (10) course code directory; and (11) adult education instructor certification requirements.
