Montgomery County Jail inmates take High School Equivalency Test

 

Montgomery County Sheriff's Office - MCSOClarksville, TN – The Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office has partnered with Workforce Essentials to launch the High School Equivalency Test (HiSet) program for inmates in the Montgomery County Jail.

The HiSet program allows adults who left high school before graduation earn their general equivalency diploma. Participants take an initial assessment test, receive classroom instruction based on their academic needs, and complete a standardized exam.

Workforce Essentials works with Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office to start High School Equivalency Test program at the Montgomery County Jail.

The HiSet exam on average takes seven hours to complete.

The exam is broken out into five subtests which can be taken on different days over a period of time.

Based on an individual’s education level, time spent studying, and the number of times it takes to pass a subtest, participants can receive their diploma anywhere from a few weeks to a year.

“We have tailored the program to our facility,” said Sergeant Roger Secrest. “We are meeting four hours per week and those who score high in the diagnostic test could be ready to take the final exam in three weeks.”
