Structure and Expectations
The framework for instruction is student-driven and based on individual needs. There are several computer-based programs that students can access and utilize at their own pace. There are numerous other classroom resources for the students to use as they prepare for the GED Test. The ISAEP Coordinator's primary role will be to act as a facilitator and Direct/Whole Group Instruction will only be a small part of the class structure.
Participants will be regularly tested (monthly minimum) in order to monitor on-going progress, identify strengths/weaknesses, and evaluate readiness to change levels or take the GED examination. These assessments may be either computer or paper/pencil-based and will be charted by the student for review by staff, parents, and the state. In addition, students are evaluated regularly for their progress in achieving proficiency in Virgina's Workplace Readiness Skills.
All ISAEP students must enroll in a Career Technical Education Program and complete the Economics and Personal Finance Course.
