High School Completion for Returning Students
with RSU 13 Staff
Welcome back to our returning students! Starting this year, we have a new system for enrolling and re-enrolling students.
RETURNING STUDENTS WHO ATTENDED LAST SCHOOL YEAR: If you had academic attendance in the last school year (July 1, 2022 – August 18, 2023) then start by registering for this class. You’ll be contacted by a staff advisor or teacher who will schedule an appointment to help you re-enroll. We’ll work with you to update your goals, paperwork and contact information so that you can get back to work in the Learning Center. A member of RSU 13 Adult & Community Education staff will be in touch (after August 28) to schedule an advising re-enrollment appointment with you.
In addition, returning students need to take a CASAS assessment exam (unless you have attended class in the past 90 days). If you know for certain you had academic attendance last school year and would like to get a head start then you can schedule your CASAS exam by contacting Rebecca at firstname.lastname@example.org. These Proctored Exam Sessions are offered regularly by our Program Assistant in the 2nd Floor Computer Lab. Feel free to reach out to Rebecca with questions email@example.com.
RETURNING STUDENTS WHO DID NOT ATTEND LAST SCHOOL YEAR: If you have been a student in the past, but do not have academic attendance from last school year (July 1, 2022 – August 18, 2023) then you will be considered a new student in our enrollment process. Please register for High School Completion Information & Enrollment (START HERE)! You will need to attend just one of the session dates listed.
