ADULT EDUCATION ORIENTATION - What is Orientation and why is it important? [RSD #9 Franklin County Adult Basic Education]

The next Mt. Blue RSD Adult Education Orientation will be held on Wednesday and Thursday, December 17 and 18, from 9:00-3:00. Classes will begin in January.

What is Orientation?

  1. Orientation is a requirement set forth by the State of Maine that all students participate in 12 hours of orientation as part of the enrollment process into Adult Education.
  2. Day One is filled with information about the program presented by various staff members and instructors. Students must complete paperwork and review policies that will guide their education.  The instructors will also administer tests to determine what learning levels our students may be at in order to place them into appropropriate classes.
  3. Day Two will have the instructors reviewing test results and setting up students'  individual schedules for classes. Students will also hear more information about use of technology in their education and college/career transitions. Not all students will require classes but will still meet with the instructors to review the next step, whether it is preparing for their HiSet (formerly GED) or for taking tests for college.

Why is it important that I attend both days?

  1. In order to best meet our students' educational needs, students must be tested and assigned appropriate classes. This cannot be completed in one day because the instructors meet as a team to discuss each student's goals and educational pathway before meeting with them individually on Day Two.

Do I need to bring anything?

  1. Please bring your lunch and snacks for both days
  2. Please bring your social security number and a state-issued picture ID if you have one (or your drivers license)


  1. Call Mt. Blue RSD Adult Education at 778-3460 Monday through Thursday from 8:30-4:00 to register for the next orientation.  The next Orientation Dates are December 17-18, 2014,  February 25-26, 2015 and April 15-16, 2015.
