OCTAE Program Memorandum 20-5: AEFLA and COVID-19 FAQs, Part 3

Dear Colleagues,

OCTAE released two sets of Frequently Asked Questions (OCTAE Program Memorandum 20-3 and OCTAE Program Memorandum 20-4) to provide guidance and assistance to States and local programs with continuity of operations in a COVID-19 environment.  OCTAE is now releasing OCTAE Program Memorandum 20-5, which we hope responds to additional questions States may have related to serving students in distance education programs.  Please continue to send questions to the AskAEFLA@ed.gov mailbox and we will try to respond as quickly as possible.

Please also visit our LINCS resource page to learn about COVID-19 support for adult educators and the U.S. Department of Education’s COVID-19 Information and Resources for Schools and School Personnel, which the Department will continue to update. 

Thank you for the work you are doing to help ensure learning continues for all of your State’s students in this difficult time. 

Cheryl L. Keenan, Director
Division of Adult Education and Literacy
