This notice is to advise students/parents/guardians of the Louisiana State Board of Elementary and Secondary Education (SBESE) policy regarding the administration of the
"Old GEE" to students who became tenth graders before the 1999-2000 school year.
The 1999-2000 tenth graders are the last students who must pass all five parts of the Old Graduation Exit Examination ("Old GEE") to earn a high school diploma. Any
students who became a tenth grader between 1988 and 1999 and did not pass all five parts of the "Old GEE" are eligible to attend the spring administration of this test
Wednesday, March 26, 2014 and March 27, 2014 at the Lafayette Parish School Board.
The Graduation Exit Examination includes five tests: Written Composition, English Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, and Social Studies. Retest students are required
to take only those parts of the "Old GEE" in which they did not previously attain the required performance standard(s). Some students will take only one part, others two or
three, and in some instances, four or five, depending on a student's testing history.
Students may take the "Old GEE" test during the spring administration from Wednesday, March 26, 2013 to Thursday, March 27, 2014.
Students/parents/guardians may contact Laurie Rees, District Test Coordinator, at the Lafayette Parish School Board (521-7029) by Friday, March 21, 2014 to register to take the test.
