Adult Education in Maine is required by Title II of the WIOA (Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act) to report how many adult learners are employed after attending adult education and/or have entered college or a training program after attending adult education.
Federal Funds are used to pay for some of our classes including, reading, writing, math, high school equivalency, and high school diploma courses. Gathering employment and postsecondary information is needed to receive the funding that pays for this part of adult education.
To get this information, this adult education program will use your Social Security number to match adult education enrollment records with employment and postsecondary records with the agencies listed below:
—The Maine Department of Labor– To report how many adults from Maine Adult Education Programs are employed. The data match does not identify you by name or where you work. Your name is actually designated a “number” and that is what is associated with your social security number.
—The National Student Clearing House– To report how many adults from Maine Adult Education Programs are enrolled in postsecondary institutions. The information obtained by the Department of Education will be used for the sole purpose of data match reporting and will not be shared with any other individuals or agencies without your written permission. All data used to conduct the data match will be purged from the Department of Labor system after the report is complete.
