Due to public requests, the Region 20 Education Service Center will offer the classes and all materials for the classes will be supplied for those who choose to participate.
The classes are for adults in the Runge and surrounding areas who are seriously interested in furthering their education and receiving their high school diploma.
The Runge Public Library has offered their facility and computers during library hours to be used in collaboration with Region 20 instructors.
This is a distance learning program which will be explained fully at registration and assessment on Feb. 19 at 9:30 a.m. at the Runge Public Library located across from the fire station on the Helena Highway in Runge.
The majority of the class will be completed online and can be done at student’s own time and speed either at the library or from the student’s home computer.
Progress and time spent on tasks are closely monitored online and assessments are given periodically. The classes are geared to prepare students to pass the GED test and the test will be administered at the end of the study time with the assistance of the instructor.
The ABE classes are geared for students who are not at a high school level but are working to reach the secondary level. Persons with limited English language skills might find these classes very helpful. There will be 12 hours required “face to face” learning with an instructor in person. The remaining 18 to 28 hours of coursework can be completed by students on their own time online.
