Goal

Support and assist hard working students, who have overcome difficult obstacles, in taking the GED exam. 

 

What will be done with my students

Hard working lower level students attending a satellite location of the Dixie Hollins Adult Education Center will have the opportunity to study and master content areas enabling them to take the official GED exam. Once a student is ready to test and has achieved mastery on all the practice tests and lessons, the student will have earned the opportunity to obtaining vouchers for the cost of the official GED exam. 

 

Benefits to my students

There are life changing benefits for students who obtain a GED. Students at this location come from difficult life circumstances. Many do not have an advocate and need someone to "believe in them when no one else does.” Most students are between the ages of 16 and 19 and have had unfortunate life events causing them to drop out of high school. Many struggle to find transportation and the ability to pay for class. Often students have to miss class or wait before they can take a test until they receive a part time job paycheck or help from a family member. Obtaining their high school diploma is first building block of success toward a productive and meaningful life. 

 

Describe the Students

Students vary from lower level ESE students to ready to test high performing GED level students. This classroom receives transfers from other fast track classrooms who did not achieve TABE (initial testing) scores to remain in a fast track Adult Education classroom. Most students are between the ages of 16 and 19. 

 

Budget Narrative

Students need to take four subject areas (Reading through Language Arts, Math, Social Studies, and Science) to pass the GED test. Each test costs $32. Students who do not pass on their first attempt are allowed to retake the test at $12 each test. This request is for 14 full voucher tests at $32 each ($448) and for 4 retake voucher tests at $12 each ($48). The total request for this project is $496.
