Career Pathways/Orientation 
Lee County Adult Education believes in setting all of their students up for success and the first step in that successful journey starts at orientation. A journey does not start without direction and goals cannot be achieved without a plan. Your education is your journey and orientation is the chance for us to give you direction and set your goals on that path. During orientation, we will discuss your scores, goals, and help you find your career pathway. 

Placement in ABE, AAAE & GED® classes is based on performance on the Test of Adult Basic Education (TABE). Those students who score lower than a 9.0 grade level on the TABE are usually placed in Adult Basic Education (ABE) courses; those students with scores of 9.0 and above are placed in GED® preparation courses. Placement in ESOL classes is based on performance on the Comprehensive Adult Student Assessment System (CASAS). Students will be placed in the appropriate classes based on ability level. 

What is TABE? 
2.5 hour test for ABE, AAAE and GED® admission 
Measures competency in reading, math, and language  

What is CASAS? 
2 hour test for ESOL admission 
Measures competency in listening and reading 

Internet Access

During class, students will access various websites to improve their skills. These websites are designed to assist students with earning their high school diploma or improving their language skills. In addition, students will gain valuable technology skills that will be beneficial with future employment. All uses of the technology in Lee County ACE Programs must be used for educational purposes only and under the guidance of your teacher. 

Federal and state legislation requires the provision of accommodations for students with disabilities as identified on the secondary student’s IEP or 504 plan to meet individual needs to ensure equal access. Students must self-identify and present documentation at the time of initial enrollment.
