Impact to My Classroom

# of Students Impacted: 25

With this grant, I was able to provide 3 current students a GED test voucher. This voucher covers the $32 test cost that our students have to fund for a total of $128 for a complete GED.  Our classes run year round, which allows me to use the vouchers throughout the year for students who are struggling financially to fund their testing. I will be able to use the 25 vouchers thru Decmember of 2018, giving me the opportunity to extend my financial assistance through the summer and fall semesters.  (As my enrollment changes I will be able to assess who needs the aide.)

 

Being able to offer these vouchers takes such a burden away from our students and allows them to focus on the testing and registration process.

Thank you for the opportunity to help our GED ready students!

Original Grant Overview

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 funding, they will have to show that they are test ready through their work and assignments. Students will have to complete their prescriptions in a timely matter and show competencies in all 4 GED test subject areas. Once this is done, we will offer qualifying students a voucher funded through your program. 

 

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.  

 

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.
