NOTES FOR TEENS WHO ARE NOT CURRENTLY IN SCHOOL
If you are currently not in school, you will need to set up an appointment to take the TABE (The Adult Basic Education) test, which is based on reading and math. Note that the TABE isn’t a pass or fail test. Instead, it helps program representatives to know which program might be better suited for that individual. If there is a basic skills deficiency, then students may be referred to a basic skills program where they can attend school and work on improving their reading and math scores. They STILL GET PAID for attending school as long as they complete the program successfully.
The deadline to apply is March 8, 2019 at 5:00pm. Space is limited. Approximately 1200 students will be selected for 2019.
