Here is a great story shared with us by Stephanie Schab, a KeyTrain instructor from Parma City School District's Adult Basic Literacy Education (ABLE): Betty had been attending my GED class at the Maple Heights library for some time. She ended up leaving her job because she wanted to go into a CDL program with her husband and begin a career change together. The trucking school said they would take WorkKeys scores of 4 on all three assessments in lieu of a GED (to at least begin the program). I signed her up for KeyTrain as a distance learner and she was using the program and attending GED classes.
Betty kept taking the math test, but kept coming up with a level 3, which is the only area she still needed to improve to get into the CDL program. I recommended that she work with Rachel, a KeyTrain instructor, in person for upskilling classes at OMJ Brookpark. She worked with Rachel and really enjoyed the additional in-person assistance. Today she nailed her math target of a level 4 and can now enroll in classes with her husband. She is so excited!
