Adult Education empowers individuals to become self-sufficient, with skills necessary for future employment and personal successes. We assist adults to become literate and obtain the knowledge and skills necessary for employment and self-sufficiency while completing a secondary education.

Adult Education is a program of instruction below the collegiate level for adults. Logan City School District Adult Education is comprised of Adult High School Completion (AHSC/ASE) and Adult Basic Education (ABE).

The adult education programs of Logan City School District do not discriminate in its programs based on race, color, national origin, sex or disabilities.

Credit Options

 

BYU Online High School

Students can be enrolled in BYU online classes to meet credit requirements.  Instructions for access and work within those specific classes will be given at enrollment.

 

A Plus

On the Firefox browser, go to the website aplus.loganschools.org. Click on the red tab that says “web start”. Enter your logon name. You will start by taking a pretest. If you pass the pretest with 80% or better, you pass the lesson and move on.  If you don’t pass, you need to study for a minimum of 5 minutes.  Take notes, review and learn what you don’t know.  After 5 minutes, you will be able to take a practice test.  If you pass the practice test with 80% or better, then you can take the mastery test.  Mastery test needs to be passed with 70% or better.  You don’t need to do the essays.  If you need to know a definition, you may go to dictionary.com to find it, but that is all you may use the internet for.  You may not search for answers to questions. If you do, you will lose credit for what you have done on A Plus and will need to find a different way to earn credit.  You can get APlus from home on your time as well as in class.
