Bulletin 741―Louisiana Handbook for School Administrators―PreGED/Skills Option Program (LAC 28:CXV.2907)
In accordance with R.S. 49:950 et seq., the Administrative Procedure Act, the Board of Elementary and Secondary Education adopted revisions to Bulletin 741—Louisiana Handbook for School Administrators: §2907. PreGED/Skills Option Program. The Rule will add new policy to existing policy for the PreGED/Skills Options program. The changes will establish two pathways of study for the PreGED/Skills Option Program: 1) A PreGED pathway for students reading below the seventh grade level, who will be working toward a locally developed skills certificate or industry-based skills certificate; and 2) a GED pathway for students reading at or above the seventh grade level and working toward attainment of an Industry-based certification. The pathways will include a scripted curriculum, a job shadowing/mentoring component, and the inclusion of WorkKeys assessment for the GED pathway students. These requested actions are the result of the review and analysis of the PreGED/Skills Option Program and a report of the PreGED/Skills Options Task Force charged to bring forth recommendations to improve the program.
