Adult General Education (AGE)
The Adult General Education (AGE) program in Miami-Dade County is required to follow the performance-based funding guidelines outlined by the Florida Department of Education (FDOE). Performance-based funding is an accountability system with a built-in incentive structure that encourages progress toward certain established goals and performance objectives with periodic measurements of progress.
AGE programs and courses of academic instruction are identified by a course number and summarized for evaluation of learning gains by Literacy Completion Points (LCPs). These LCPs are designated by letters corresponding to specific grade-level equivalencies. Attainment of the prescribed academic or workforce readiness skills qualifies the participant for further basic or career/technical education, and/or employment as denoted by an LCP.
