The current version of the General Equivalency Diploma test will expire at the end of the year, and the new version will be in effect starting Jan. 2.
Those who have begun to take the test, but haven't passed all five parts, have until the end of the year to pass or they will need to start over again with the new test to receive their GED.
"The GED test opens doors to college, better jobs, the respect adults deserve, and the satisfaction of earning a high school credential," said Kim McConnaughy, Regional Coordinator of Adult Education with RESA 6. "So we want to be sure that everyone is aware of this deadline. GED test-takers must act now to finish and pass before the current test expires."
"Support is available, right here in each of our adult education learning centers. We can help adult learners get prepared to take the parts of the GED test they still need to pass. We want you to succeed."
Adult education learning centers are located at:
John D. Rockefeller Career Center, (304) 564-3337;
Brooke County Library, (304) 527-1410, extension 3134; and
