|Registration for adult education classes|
|From Staff Reports|
Jan. 16, 2006 - Registration will be conducted the week of Jan. 23-26 for adult education classes which begin Jan. 30 at Sulphur Springs Higher Learning Center, 1202 Houston St.
Classes are offered at two different times, 8:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Monday through Wednesday.
In order to take advantage of these free courses, either as a means to refresh skills or as preparation for the GED test, students must attend a four-day registration/orientation in order to take state-mandated tests to determine student-learning levels.
Students must also attend all four morning or evening orientation session, or a combination of the two, in order to be accepted as a student. Orientation will be held Jan. 23-26 from 9 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. and from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at SSHEC.
�Students need to realize that registering for GED classes is a serious commitment. One should not register if one is not ready to make that commitment,� Nina Alford for SSHEC-Paris Junior College said. �After this registration, classes will start the following week. To remain enrolled, a student may miss no more than three days. After all, the more concentrated time spent on lessons, the sooner one�s goals can be realized.�
Prospective students must also be 17 years old or older. Students who are only 17 must bring with them a copy of their formal withdrawal from high school.
