Adult Education & Literacy
Little Elm ISD offers Adult Education through Denton ISD in the following programs:
Adult Basic Education (ABE)
These classes are below high school level where the primary objective is teaching basic literacy skills. ABE primarily focuses on individuals whose inability to effectively use basic literacy skills constitutes a substantial impairment to either obtain to retain employment, or to function in society. ABE classes provide basic skills instruction in grade levels 0-8 in reading, writing, mathematics, science, social studies, and life-coping skills.
English Language Acquisition (ELA) formerly known as English as a Second Language (ESL)
ESL Instruction is provided for those whose native language is not English. Sometimes referred to as English Language Learning (ELL). ESL classes, from pre-literacy level to the advanced level, help students develop speaking, listening, reading, writing, and grammar skills to communicate effectively in English within their workplaces, communities, and families. The inability to understand, speak, read, or write the English language may constitute a substantial impairment to obtain or retain employment, and interfere with functioning successfully in society.
Adult Secondary Education (ASE or GED)
GED program is provided fr eligible adults who lack a high school diploma. The GED is the national high school equivalency program that includes a set of courses in mathematics, English, history, science, government, and other courses leading to a high school diploma. The GED exam is a high school equivalency test developed by the GED Testing Services of the American Council of Education and approved by the TWC.
