Students that need to pass the state's old Graduate Exit Exam, or GEE, will have another chance to take the exam in Lafayette this month.
Students who were in 10th grade during the 1999 to 2000 school year are the last students who must pass all five parts of the 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 GEE are eligible to attend the fall administration of the test from Oct. 21 to Oct. 25 at the Lafayette Parish School Board office.
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 GEE they did not pass.
Students, parents or guardians may contact Susan Kahn at 337-521-7029 by Oct. 18 to register for the test.
