Unable to finish high school?
If you were unable to finish high school and would like an opportunity to do something about it, the Perham Public School can help you. This is called the G.E.D. (General Educational Development), a class that can lead to a High School Equivalency Certificate.
The course is a refresher of math, reading, science, social studies and writing skills, which includes a written essay. Students work at their own rate until they feel they are ready for the test. Then arrangements will be made with the G.E.D. testing center at the Wadena Technical College. There is no fee for this class; however, there will be a $70 test fee at the end.
The G.E.D. class is available to anyone 18 years of age or older. The local program is taught by Dave Evenson. The first class will meet Jan. 5, 2009 at 5:30 p.m. in the Alternative Learning Center. Students may register at this time by calling the Community Education Office at 346-6502 or Dave Evenson at 346-3770.
