Summertime is a great opportunity for students to advance in their learning cycle. We usually want to take the summer off and spend all our time doing those things we enjoy so much. The good news...you can still enjoy yourself but take advantage of the online learning opportunities. Working towards your educational goals online gives you the convenience of accomplishing lessons at your own leisure. Your Distance Learning staff will be available all summer long to help you with lessons and tutoring as needed. NISD will begin 2011-12 GED Testing in August, which gives all students a chance to study well before taking the test. Keep in touch with your teacher so that we know you are still working towards meeting that goal of getting your GED, advancing in a job, building your English skills, getting a new job or enrolling into college.
A reminder to all students: Our program officially ends in June. In order to stay with our program we request that ALL students come into the office in the month of July to register for 2011-2012 school year. It will be painless; returning students will need to fill out a few forms with demographic information. Students who have not been actively working on their lessons and/or did not complete end of year testing will not be allowed to register in the Adult Education program this year. If you are not certain of your status, please contact us.
Dates to remember this Summer:
June 18 - Distance Learning Office will be closed for National Refugee Day
July 2 thru 17 - Independence Day weekend and maintenance closure
July 29 - deadline for all returning students to registered for school year 2011-12 (students who do not register will be dropped to give opportunity for new students to enter the program)
As usual, please contact us if you need assistance or have any questions.
Have a wonderful, warm, safe Summer.
