Message from the Instructor:
I have been the adult education teacher for Morgan School District since 1993. Over the years, we have had students complete their high school diploma or GED and many have gone on to complete a trade and a few have gone on to college with a scholarship.
Our program is open to local and residents of nearby communities who did not graduate from high school and want to earn their high school diploma or GED. Our program is designed as open enrollment. Students can enter and leave at any time. The majority of coursework is completed online with one-on-one help available from the teacher as needed. The teacher can monitor student progress online and see what students are learning and how they are progressing through their coursework. Students use computer assisted instruction before completing the related assignment. The assignment is graded by the computer so feedback is instant. If the student needs assistance, they may phone, email, or text the instructor at any time and I will get back to the student shortly. After completing a given amount of coursework, students may call for an appointment or attend the Wednesday evening session to complete their final test. There is a final exam in most courses but not all.
When a student enrolls in the program, they have to complete a series of tests that determine their level of proficiency or knowledge at that time. Since leaving high school, many students through employment have increased their knowledge and abilities in reading, writing, science, history, and mathematics. Many students receive elective credits for their employment, military service, professional courses, or other courses from their employer. Students begin to complete the course work at their current level shortly after registration. I also assist each student in making a plan for their future, whether it be completing high school or earning acceptance into a trade school or a college program. I can help them determine what education they need to enter a particular career path. I help students with scholarship applications, resume writing, and teach interviewing skills if desired.
Our program has many advantages over the 100% face to face programs offered in nearby school districts. Our program usually costs less than the programs offered in other school districts. Expenses vary depending on the courses needed with some courses available at no cost. This program allows students to work and complete school at the same time. It allows 24/7 access at home, work, or play. Many students have been able to continue their coursework even when out of town. Students proceed at their own pace and thus are able to graduate with their diploma in their own time frame. There is a minimum amount of work that must be completed in every two week period. I provide a lot of help and resources for those preparing for their GED.
If interested, contact Blaine Fackrell at (801) 668-0101 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Interested students can also visit the Adult Education Center in the portable to the south of the high school football field on Wednesday evening from 6:30 to 9:30 pm. I will be glad to make arrangements to meet and begin your program.
