FAQ

  • Who is eligible for Seniors Plus?

    Posted by:

    Whether you fell short of passing just a few classes or circumstances led to withdrawing or dropping out early, Seniors Plus offers you an alternative path to earning your Leyden diploma.  This program serves all Leyden students currently living in the district, ages 18-21.  If you are eligible for the program, this is a great alternative to a GED.  

    You must be able to commit to attending the program every day, as daily attendance is required.  There are two session times to choose from:

             8am - 11am or 12pm - 3pm

  • Can I work on the classes from home?

    Posted by:

    No, students are not allowed to work from home, as Seniors Plus is grant-funded program based on daily attendance rates.  Daily attendance is required, so completing the required classes at home is not currently an option.

  • Do I need any vaccinations to enroll in Seniors Plus?

    Posted by:

    Yes.  Since many students were freshman prior to certain vaccinations being required, you will need to be up-to-date on these in order to be allowed in the school building.  Most students will need to get the TdaP and Meningococcal Conjugate (MCV4) vaccines.  Please contact the Site Coordinator for more information on required health updates.

  • Is there a Wait List for the Program?

    Posted by:

    Yes, as seats fill to capacity, some students will be placed on a "Wait List".  A student's position on the Wait List is determined by several factors, including age and number of classes needed.  As seats open in the program, students are contacted in the order in which they are on the list.  Time on the Wait List can range from a few weeks to a couple of months, depending on the rate of student completion in the classroom.

  • How long will it take for me to complete my diploma?

    Posted by:

    It depends on the number of classes you have remaining and your effort while in class.  We estimate that it should take a student approximately 4-5 weeks to complete one class; this time could be longer for some classes such as math and English.  We base this time on the assumption that a student is working 3 hours per day, 5 days per week during regular school attendance days.  You will take classes 1-2 at a time until you have completed all required classes.  Seniors Plus provides classroom time during the regular school year and during both summer school sessions.
