Program Overview

  • The Monroe One BOCES TASC/High School Equivalency preparation program is a New York State approved program. This program prepares students who will not graduate with their class because of credit deficiency, but are otherwise capable of completing graduation requirements, to achieve their high school equivalency diploma. Students attend class from 8:20 a.m.–11:20 a.m., Monday–Friday. They work independently on an individualized plan, as well as in groups, to prepare for the TASC (Test Assessing Secondary Completion™). 

    The length of the program varies according to the student’s age, academic ability, and work ethic. Once the student achieves appropriate cut scores on the Official Readiness Assessment, s/he will be recommended to sit for the TASC.
