The purpose of this document is to assist Florida school districts in implementing the General Educational Development (GED) Exit Option Model for students at risk of not completing high school.

This manual provides information on student eligibility criteria, American Council on Education (ACE) guidelines for the GED Exit Option Model, school district application process, the amendment process, GED Exit Option authorization forms, implementation guidelines for the GED Exit Option Model, and Department of Juvenile Justice students in GED preparation programs. Extensive appendices include a memorandum on high school graduation testing requirements, a district application for the GED Exit Option Model, a flow chart illustrating the GED Exit Option Model placement decision process, general requirements for adult general education programs, an explanation of the awarding of Florida high school diplomas, and GED curriculum frameworks and correlation of GED to Sunshine State Standards.
