ABLE schedules winter classes

GREENVILLE--Without a high school education, it is difficult to find and keep a good job. Additionally, many of the better paying jobs require training beyond high school.

Greenville City Schools Adult Basic & Literacy Education (ABLE) Program offers classes to job seekers and employees who need to improve their academic skills for college, job training, GED Test, work-related tests, and the U.S. Citizenship Test.

Anyone, even those with high school diplomas, may enroll if he/she needs help to improve basic skills for job interview tests or college entrance tests. Classes are free.

Individuals whose first language is not English may enroll in classes for English for Speakers of Other Languages. These classes resume Jan. 5, 2013, 9 a.m., at the Greenville High School Career Technical Center, 100 Green Wave Way, Greenville.

Orientation for evening classes will be Greenville High School Career Technical Center, 100 Green Wave Way in Greenville on Jan. 8, 2013, 5:30 p.m.

ABLE’s orientation for day classes at Edison Community College, Darke County Branch at 601 Wagner Ave. in Greenville is Jan. 15, 2013, 9 a.m. in Room 127.

The last time to register for the 2002 Series GED test is August 2013, so the upcoming winter session for ABLE classes will be the last time to prepare for the current version of the GED test, which will expire at the end of 2013. The current version, known as the 2002 Series GED test, will be replaced with the new 2014 GED test on Jan. 2, 2014.

Those who have taken the 2002 Series GED test, but not passed all five parts, have until the end of 2013 to pass, or they will need to start over in 2014 with the new GED test in order to receive their high school credential.

Potential test takers should know a few important tips before the end of 2013:

Registration deadline for repeat GED® test-takers and for new GED® test-takers is Aug. 9, 2013.

Last day to take the current version of the GED® test is Dec. 21, 2013.

The total cost of the current GED Test is $40.

Re-testers will be charged $10 per subject test being retaken, up to a maximum of $40.

In January 2014, the new GED Test will cost $120.

Since 1995, 620 adults have received their GEDs after attending Greenville City Schools Adult Basic & Literacy Education Program, which is a member of the University System of Ohio.
