|Laura Lael||First Year: Fast Track|
The G.E.D. Fast Track program at Macon-Piatt Adult Ed. Center in Decatur started in April of 2011. They have run three programs so far. The first Fast Track class started out with eight students but only five met all the requirements.
Each Fast Track program ran for approximately one month. Each week, the students would study for a different test. For example, the first week they would all work on reading. They would meet Tuesday-Thursday for two hours and on Friday they would take their Reading Test. The R.O.E. would come to their facility and give the exam.
To make sure students have completed 40 hours of instruction, they have been pulling students from their regular program that meet the requirements.
