Ozarks Technical Community College will offer Adult Education and Literacy classes at the Bolivar Schools Administration Building beginning Tuesday, September 8.  The free classes are designed for anyone interested in seeking a GED, improving their literacy, or learning English as a second language.  Held in the basement of the Administration Building, the class will meet during the day Monday through Thursday, 9 a.m. – 1 p.m., and Monday and Wednesday evenings, 5:30 – 8 p.m.

Enrollees must be at least 17 years old; students who are 17 years old must have a letter from a school principal on the school stationery giving permission for them to enroll.  Enrollment will be cut off at 15 students.  Additional students will be put on a waiting list and will be contacted as openings are available.  

Students seeking a GED, or high school equivalency diploma, are tested when they first enroll to determine the specific instruction they will need.  There is no set time required for a student to pass the GED test; the length of time required will depend on how much the student needs to learn and how hard that student works.

Online classes through Ozarks Technical Community College are also available, but students must first attend class to be tested so the online class can be customized.  For more information, contact Ramona George, Director of Adult Education and Literacy, by calling (417) 447-8861.
