Grants to Virginia public school divisions for services to benefit secondary school students. Funding is intended to support programs allowing students to gain workforce and technical skills and to work towards a GED credential. The goal of the program is to provide an alternative pathway for qualifying secondary students to earn a high school equivalency (HSE) credential and prepare for a successful transition to postsecondary education and workforce opportunities.
The purpose of the Individual Student Alternative Education Plan (ISAEP) program is to provide individualized educational services for students 16 years of age and older as prescribed by the Virginia Board of Education. The program prepares qualifying secondary students to earn a high school equivalency credential while also developing career and technical skills.
At a minimum, students enrolled in an ISAEP program should be provided an opportunity to earn a career readiness credential such as the Virginia Workplace Readiness Skills (WRS) for the Commonwealth Assessment or the National Career Readiness Certificate (CRC). ISAEP coordinators are expected to communicate and collaborate closely with their local and/or regional Career and Technical Education (CTE) departments to determine viable workforce training and credentialing options available to meet the needs of students enrolled in the ISAEP program.
Another core component of the ISAEP program is the completion of the Economics and Personal Finance (EPF) course requirement. Course credit may be earned using a variety of instructional delivery methods. Options may include taking a stand-alone course, a self-paced modular version of the course, or a virtual course. This requirement also may be met using a certification of competency approach. Students should be provided an opportunity to take the Working in Support of Education (W!SE) Test.
