Packet Diploma Program

WARRIORS RISING

Welcome to the Warriors Rising diploma packet program at Ashley Valley Adult Education. We are committed to helping you reach your educational goals. Please find our Warriors Rising-AVEC Facebook page Here.

Expectations
• Warriors Rising students are required to spend at least 12 hours per week on completing school work. Students who spend a minimum of 12 hours per week on packets progress faster and experience more academic success and satisfaction.
• If you choose to work off campus, you will be responsible to keep track of your hours and turn them in each week. You may turn in your distance learning log by dropping it off on campus, faxing it, emailing it, or taking a photo and texting it to the adult ed secretary.
• You will check in with your teacher on a weekly basis via phone call, email or text. You will need to meet with your teacher on campus every two weeks so she can check on your progress and you can turn in your work. Failure to check in within 10 days will result in being dropped from the program.
• If you are dropped from the program a second time, you will have to wait till the following school year to re-enroll in the Warriors Rising program.

Costs
• The enrollment fee is $20 and must be paid at the time of registration and testing. If you stop working on your packets, you will be dropped from the program and will pay an additional $20 re-enrollment fee should you wish to reenter the program.
• The packet fee is $20 and must be paid before you get your first packet consisting of a student course reader and a student workbook. Upon completion of a packet, you will return both the student course reader and the student workbook. The workbook will be graded. If you fail to return the student course reader, you will have to pay an additional $20 fee for the next packet (student course reader and student workbook).

Testing
• Upon enrollment and before beginning packets, each student is required to take a TABE pretest which includes the areas of reading, math, and language. After you have completed 50 hours of coursework, you will be eligible to take a TABE post-test in your area of focus (the area in which you scored lowest on the pretest). The complete TABE pretest takes approximately 2 hours to complete. Post-tests take 30-45 minutes to complete, depending on your area of focus.
• Post-tests are designed to track student progress. The adult ed program is funded by the state based on student outcomes, so you will be expected to do your best when taking any TABE tests. If you improve on a post-test and get a level gain, you will be given a reward.
• Students with enough hours to take a TABE post-test will be expected to complete post testing before receiving new packets.

Credits
• When you complete a packet or student workbook, your teacher will grade it and write a credit slip for the completed course. For each credit slip you earn, you will be given a reward.
• It is recommended that you keep your credit slips for your records as proof of completed courses and grades, should a discrepancy on your transcript arise. We strive to keep accurate records, but sometimes mistakes happen.
• Each packet is worth ½ credit and should take 60-80 hours to complete. Hours will be documented via distance learning log if you are working off campus and/or via sign in sheet if working on campus.
