IHD - Marshwood Adult & Community Education

An educational program for adults shall be established and maintained in the school system. This program shall provide, at convenient times and at reasonable costs, opportunities for residents of the community and surrounding areas to receive instruction in subjects commonly taught in the public schools and in such other fields as recommended by the Superintendent and approved by the Board. Appropriate recognition certificates of attendance and satisfactory performance of work shall be issued upon completion of units and instruction.

Through its various programs and courses for adults, the Board shall seek to meet the needs of adults of all ages who, for whatever reason, have been unable to secure a high school diploma in a regular school program, who need additional training to become more efficient in their chosen occupations, or who would like to pursue interests relating to academic, vocational or enrichment activities.

In extenuating circumstances and in accordance with procedures approved by the Board, students who are 16 years of age or older up to age 20 and who are enrolled as day students at Marshwood High School may earn up to two credits toward a Marshwood High School diploma.
