Grants to Virginia public school divisions to prepare high school students for workforce opportunities. Funding is intended to help students attain grade equivalency certification and enable them to join the workforce. Grants may be used to provide students who are at least 16 years of age with career counseling, enrollment in a high school equivalency program, and technical and career education.
The program prepares qualifying secondary students to earn a high school equivalency credential while also developing career and technical skills. Currently, the GED® test is the only approved HSE examination in Virginia. While working toward a GED credential, students must participate in career and technical education, which may include a variety of work-based learning experiences and enrollment in coursework with a goal to attain one or more Board-approved industry credentials.
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.
