Support Grandfathering of Passing 2013 GED Scores

California adult learners do not deserve more barriers to education.  Now that the State Board of Education has adopted three high school equivalency tests, there is the opportunity for the State to support adult learners who passed parts of the GED in 2013.  Support a clause to grandfather in passing scores from 2013 for the TASC and HiSet.  Below is the clause adopted by the State of New York Adult Education:


Grandfathering GED® test scores: A candidate may use up to four (4) passing GED® sub-tests (score of 410 or above) taken between 2002-2013 to count towards earning a New York State High School Equivalency Diploma. The use of these scores will be allowed for two years (2014 and 2015). Candidates taking TASC™ for the first time must take all five TASC™ sub-tests. Each TASC™ sub-test that the candidate passes will be posted on the candidate’s transcript. If the candidate does not pass the TASC™ sub-test but passed the same GED® sub-test, the GED® score will be accepted as a passing score. If a candidate has already passed all five (5) GED® sub-tests but did not attain the minimum total score of 2250, such candidate must pass at least one of the TASC™ sub-tests to obtain a New York State High School Equivalency Diploma.


Let’s take down the barriers. Write or call
