Minnesota ABE

While the ATLAS website focuses on professional development, the Minnesota ABE website provides in-depth information about a variety of broader ABE topics:

  • Minnesota ABE overview, statistics and trends 
  • ABE programs and consortia (including maps and manager contact information)
  • Program areas (GED, ESL, transitions, etc.)
  • Program management (including policies, accountability, funding, etc.)
  • Statewide events and other professional development
  • Credentialing/certificates
  • ABE supplemental service providers
  • Resource curricula

ABE Supplemental Services

ABE Supplemental Service providers (such as ATLAS) offer assistance to all approved ABE programs for activities such as professional development, volunteer training, low-incidence needs, and technological innovation.
