Kendall County Historic Courthouse New GED Testing Site
The Grundy-Kendall Regional Office of Education provided the following news release:
Christopher Mehochko, Assistant Regional Superintendent of Schools, has announced that the General Educational Development (GED) tests can now be taken in Yorkville at the Historic Courthouse, 109 W. Ridge St. To take the GED tests in prior years, Kendall County residents had to drive to Morris.
“People told me it takes forever to drive to Morris, even though it really only takes 25 minutes,” quipped Mehochko. “Our goal is to make services as convenient as possible for Kendall County residents.”
The GED testing in Kendall County takes place over two days. The next scheduled tests will be August 2 and 3. Students need to register for the tests at the Regional Office of Education, 109 W. Ridge St., Yorkville. For more information, call (630) 553-4168 or visit the roe24.org website.
Changes to the GED tests are coming in 2014 so Mehochko urges current students to complete their GED requirements soon. Under the nationwide changes, past scores won’t count if students haven’t passed all of the tests by January 1, 2014. In 2014, the GED tests are expected to be more rigorous, will cost more money, and will be taken in a computer classroom, not using the current pencil and paper method.
