With many people hoping to make positive changes in their lives in the new year, the Adult Education Program in Carter County is hoping to help some residents meet their goals.
“Start the New Year out with a great resolution,” said Carol Russom, director of the Adult Education programs for Carter and Johnson Counties. “Now’s the time to come back to school and obtain your GED or High School Equivalency Diploma.”
This week, the program began offering morning classes for those seeking to obtain their GED or High School Equivalency Diploma. The morning classes will be held from 8:30 a.m. until Noon Monday through Wednesday, with extended day classes offered from Noon until 2 p.m .on Mondays and Wednesday.
“There will be two different level classes offered: Fast Track and Regular Track,” Russom said.
Night classes will be offered on Monday from 4-7:30 p.m. and on Tuesday from 4:30-7:30. ESOL classes are also offered on Wednesday and Thursday, from 4:30-6:30 p.m.
Distance education classes, tutoring and a computer lab are also available for all students in the program.
“If you are lacking just a few tests or you would like to come in and take the Official Practice Test, just give us a call and we’ll sign you up,” Russom said. “This year, the Governor has set aside funds to help pay the $75 cost of the GED/HiSET, based on eligible scores, and there will be an exciting drawing in May for all students who have successfully passed the GED/HiSET, from January through May.”
