Task Force to Study the Adult High School Concept

The Task Force to Study the Adult High School Concept recommended how to establish and regulate adult high schools. In formulating its recommendations, the Task Force considered eligibility requirements, financial stability, and capacity standards for adult high school operators; accreditation; reporting requirements; curriculum content; matriculation requirements; funding options, including financial aid; and other relevant issues.

The Task Force to Study the Adult High School Concept was created by House Bill 1406 by the 2016 Maryland General Assembly.
