Education and literacy are keys to a better quality of life. More than 800,000 Virginia adults do not have a high school diploma or high school credential, and many more lack literacy in key areas such as math or business skills.
To serve these populations, programs across the state offer basic skills development, GED test preparation, English language acquisition skills, and English literacy and civics education.
To comply with federal requirements, The Office of Adult Education and Literacy uses the following guidance documents:
- Assessment Policy (PDF) Effective July 1, 2012
- Goal-Setting Policy (PDF)
- Distance Education Policy (PDF)
- Universal Student Intake Forms
How VDOE helps
VDOE supports adult education and literacy primarily by funding and supporting the programs at the local level. Each of the 22 regional programs, led by a program manager and a regional specialist, provides adult education services to all cities and counties in its region.
Public school systems, community colleges and community based organizations are most often the providers of these services.
