DOUGLASS ISAEP/G.E.D. OPTIONMrs. Kim Woodward, School Counselor
The ISAEP/G.E.D. program at Douglass is designed to assist students between the ages of 16-18, who would not otherwise be eligible, to take the G.E.D. exam. The acronym ISAEP stands for: Individualized Student Alternative Educational Plan. This program is the only option for students 16-18 years of age to finish high school early.
Students are referred by their home school guidance counselor to our program for many reasons:
- They are behind in credits and will not graduate on time.
- They are having difficulty remaining focused and will drop out.
- They have a need to finish high school and move to the next phase of life.
The ISAEP/G.E.D. option at Douglass School provides these students with:
- Academic preparation
- Career counseling
- Workplace education
- Job assistance
- Transition planning
In order to receive their G.E.D. with an ISAEP from Douglass School,
each student must:
- Pass all 4 of the G.E.D. subtests.
- Complete vocational assignments geared to the world of work.
- Engage in individual career counseling and transition planning.
The ISAEP/G.E.D. program is a great option for students with poor grades, attendance, and motivation, who might eventually drop out of school.Our program gives students a second chance at a positive educational experience and the opportunity to attend college, work, learn a trade, enter the military and lead successful lives.
