The Official GED Test will be changing in the next few months.  The cost to take the GED Test is now $60.00.  After July 1, 2012 the cost will be $120.00.  Another change is the GED Test will become a computerized test.  In other words, you will no longer take the test with pencil and paper and write your essay question.

If you are interested in getting your GED, now is the time to act.  If you have taken the Official GED Test and need to retest one or two parts, you need to do so immediately.  After July 1, 2012 your previous GED Test scores will be voided; therefore you will have to take the entire, new GED Test again.

Health Educator Rhonda Bowling and Lynnett Renner gave a presentation on some changes that have been made to the community, and plans for future developments.

“Manchester gained unfavorable press from the Washington Post just last year, when they named us “Unhealthy Clay”. In an effort to change that scope, we are changing the environment in which we live,” says Bowling. “It is important that we come together to change the quality of life in Manchester.”
