|Program Goal: To assist migrant and seasonal farmworker students in obtaining the equivalent of a high school diploma and, subsequently, to begin postsecondary education, enter military service, or obtain employment.|
|Objective 1 of 2: An increasing percentage of HEP participants will receive their General Educational Development (GED) diploma.|
|Indicator 1.1 of 1: Percent of High School Equivalency Program (HEP) participants will receive the GED.|
Source: HEP/CAMP grantee performance reports.
Next Data Available: March 2006
Limitations: OME is working with grantees to provide detailed information within the annual performance reports.
Explanation: This is a long-term target. This measure differs from a similar FY 2005 performance measure in focusing on the percentage of participants who receive the GED, rather than complete the program and receive the GED, to more accurately reflect data collected from grantees.
|Objective 2 of 2: An increasing percentage of HEP participants in the GED will enter postsecondary education programs, career positions, or the military.|
|Indicator 2.1 of 1: Post-GED placement: The percentage of HEP participants who earn the GED and enter postsecondary education programs, career positions, or the military will continue to be high, if not increase.|
Source: HEP/CAMP grantee performance reports
