I acknowledge that I was given the opportunity to participate in the MCTC Skills U College and Career Pathway program sessions. I also understand that the College and Career Navigator’s role is to assist GED seeking students in accessing and succeeding in Adult Education and college programs, and/or in attaining occupational credentials, and/or in pursuing quality careers. At this time, my primary focus is to obtain a GED credential only. I do NOT want to earn any other certificate or credential, nor do I plan to change my career/employment status after I earn a GED.

MCTC Adult Education Distance Learning Policy

MCTC Adult Education believes that students who consistently participate by attending classes in-person are more likely to increase their academic performance, achieve successful progress scores and to reach their goals. However, we also realize that students may be prevented from regularly attending in-person classes for a variety of reasons – work schedules, home life, disabilities or mobility issues, etc. If students cannot consistently attend in-person classes, local programs provide several distance learning options to accommodate students.

  • Each adult education provider location will have a designated Distance Learning Lead (DLL). (Dustin Grooms, Maysville campus)
    • The DLL’s purpose is to serve as a resource and “go to” person for other instructors regarding the various distance learning programs offered.
  • Determining Student Interest/Need for a Distance Learning Program
    • Determining students' interest/need in a distance learning program should be a part of each program's orientation process. If a student expresses interest/need in a distance learning program during orientation, that information should be documented and forwarded to an appropriate instructor.
    • Instructors should follow up with the student within two weeks of the student’s official start date to further discuss a distance learning program and determine best plans for the student. Notes regarding this follow-up discussion may be documented in the student's file.
  • Expectations for Student Progress
    • Per MCTC AE’s attendance policy, students are expected to attend class at least ten hours per week, cumulatively. Attendance can be in the form of a distance learning program, in-class instruction, paper packets/workbooks, or a combination of all the above.
      • It is each instructor’s responsibility to monitor students’ distance learning accounts weekly and report DL hours.
      • It is each instructor’s responsibility to contact students who have not been completing DL assignments to see if they are having problems/issues with the program(s) or technology. Instructors will continue to monitor student accounts and follow up with inactive students to maximize retention and student participation.
    • It is each student’s responsibility to contact the instructor with questions about their distance learning program and materials.
      • It is each instructor’s responsibility to respond to student questions in a timely manner while the student remains enrolled and active.
    • Online student accounts that remain inactive for 60 days – after consistent retention/follow up efforts made in good faith - will be deactivated.
  • Documenting Distance Learning
    • Instructors will be responsible for tracking students’ distance learning work and time. A distance learning log will be placed in each student’s file to record hours earned, and DL hours will be logged in KAERS weekly.
    • Detailed reports of students’ distance learning usage will be obtained from the appropriate distance learning program, printed, and maintained in students’ files.
    • Assigned workbooks such as Scoreboost, Steck-Vaughn, New Readers Press, etc. are worth four (4) hours of DL time.
    • Shorter packets printed from online (ex: Kuta Software) or sections from larger books will be tallied by 15 minutes per assigned page, eg. a 4-page packet is worth one (1) hour of DL.
  • GED Ready Tests Taken Off-Site
    • Students may take GED Ready tests using provided test vouchers at an off-site location. Instructors will assign GED Ready tests to students as appropriate and document completion of GED Ready tests as proxy hours in accordance with the KYAE Implementation Guidelines.
  • Student Use of MCTC Devices
    • Students’ technological needs (e.g., having no laptop/tablet to complete DL assignments) may be addressed on a case-by-case basis with “loaner” devices that can be checked out from local centers. These are for extreme cases only, and we encourage students to use their own devices when possible.
    • By agreeing to check out a laptop or device owned by MCTC AE (laptop/Chromebook/Study Buddy), students consent to undertake the financial liability incurred in case(s) of damage, theft, or loss.
        • Students who attempt to keep MCTC AE devices as their own or sell/trade them as personal property may be subject to civil suits or other legal action.
    • By agreeing to check out a laptop, students consent that the device remains the rightful property of KCTCS and MCTC AE programs and is meant only for the completion of distance learning assignments.

Agreement to terms and conditions of MCTC AE DL Program policy:

I have read, understood, and agree to the terms and conditions of MCTC AE’s DL policy. By signing, I consent to working with my instructor(s) to establish a plan for distance learning, completing DL assignments by assigned deadlines, maintaining communication with my instructor(s), and agree with the terms set forth regarding the use of MCTC AE devices (if applicable).
