Park City School District’s Adult Education program has doubled the number of students taking and earning their GED now that it can proctor the test.
“It’s so much more convenient for our students to take the test in the same location they are taking the GED classes,” said Alison Taylor who oversees the Community Education’s adult education program. Taylor is a proctor for the test thanks to a grant from the Utah Board of Education.
During 2018-19, five students earned their GED in English, five completed their GED in Spanish, four earned their high school diplomas, and five inmates at the Summit County Jail passed the GED.
Traditionally, the GED program has not been offered during the summer months but this year is different. There are 30 adults spending the summer working on earning their GEDs, including 12 in Spanish.
GED classes are held at the Park City Learning Academy and students who are age 18 or older qualify. Classes are held Tuesday and Thursday nights and cost of the program is $40.
