Challenges

What do we still need to figure
out?
Future Discussions
 Division of time between content and
  GED/ESL material and teachers
 Textbooks: Level of difficulty vs. content
  support
 Students‟ time commitments (longer days
  vs. more days)
       Outcomes

What are we hoping for?
Measuring „Success‟
 Completion of CITC/OFTC courses with a
  „C‟ or better
