Welcome to the AASD Adult Education Program 

AASD Schools and the Adult Education Program  Update June 6,2020

This week, June 3, 2020, the PA Department of Education issued guidance that outlines steps for us to safely resume face-to-face adult education classes. We’re developing a plan that addresses safe operations, teaching and learning for all learners and staff.
We appreciate your patience as we get closer to resuming face-to-face classes. 
In the meantime, our dedicated staff will continue to offer classes remotely.
Face to Face classes at this time remain closed.
Please check back often for updates!
