Goal

The goal for our classroom is for students to be successful in obtaining their GED s. Your generous donation will be used to pay for these GED tests. With our encouragement and instruction and your financial assistance, we hope to not only help them complete their education, but build their confidence as they embark on to higher education and better jobs. 

 

What will be done with my students

In order for students to qualify for the Achieva Grant, they will have to show that they are test ready through their work and assignments, as well as complete our financial literacy packet. This packet allows students to review the basic skills and needs of a budget and practice some everyday problems that might impact their financial circumstances. Once the students have completed the packet and shown proficiency on their GED Ready tests, we will give them the opportunity to take the GED test with a grant funded voucher. 

 

Benefits to my students

Your grant will lift some of the financial hardship that many of our already overburdened students have to endure in order to pay for the new test. The $32 fee times 4 tests may seem insignificant to a financially secure family but for our students, this cost can be insurmountable. For example, we currently have a student who has to decide which class to attend based on her gas consumption for the week. 

 

Describe the Students

Our students are adult learners between the ages of 16 and 65. Many of whom had to make difficult decisions choosing between completing high school and life changing circumstances. These pupils are often unemployed, unskilled, single parents who can't take on the extra expense of the GED exams which is a total of $128.00 ($32 for each of the 4 tests).

 

 

Budget Narrative

The funds will cover GED subject tests @ the cost of $32 a piece for qualifying students who are test ready and have completed the financial literacy packet.
