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 Fall administration of this test from Monday, October 25, 2010 through Friday, October 29, 2010 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 Fall administration from Monday, October 25, 2010 through Friday, October 29, 2010.
Students/parents/guardians may contact Harriett Taylor, District Test Coordinator, at the Lafayette Parish School Board (521-7081 or 521-7080) by Monday, October 25, 2010 to register to take the test.
