If you cannot read this email click here to view a copy online
GED Changes from HB 487
Effective this past Wednesday, a major change on eligibility to take the GED exam became effective.

A superintendent’s approval and signature are no longer required for young people below the age of 19 to

sit for the exam. The submission form for GED testers ages 16 and 17 must include a copy of the current year

withdrawal form signed by the school administrator. Additionally, an Original Consent Form must be signed and

notarized from either the parent, guardian, or court official (copies of the guardianship or court documents must

be included).

Form submission for GED testers age 18 must include a copy of the current year withdrawal form signed by the

school administrator.

E-Rate Changes
The Federal Communications Commission made changes to E-rate, a program which connects schools and libraries

to broadband. The changes are effective beginning with the 2015-2016 funding year. Among the changes, the

commission is no longer requiring technology plans from schools. Therefore, the Ohio Department of Education will

no longer require technology plans to be submitted from E-rate recipients. A Complete set of updates from the FCC

is available here.

OPES Training 

BASA will offer a two-day training session for administrators in October. The training dates are October 20 and 21

participants will be able to take the online credentialing test. You may register for this training through the Ohio
