0275.055.05 Documentation Required

IM-37 June 17, 2011

The MWA Attendance Log or statements that include information from the MWA Attendance Log from an instructor or other supervisory personnel are required documentation for the following Satisfactory Attendance at Secondary School or Course of Study Leading to General Educational Development (GED):

  • High school
  • GED preparatory and testing
  • Limited English Proficiency (LEP) classes
  • home schooling

TA recipients provide a class schedule at the start of each term of the course of study or a statement from the instructor or other supervisory personnel. A countable hour is equal to an hour of classroom time. After documentation is obtained, the hours are entered under the respective MWA System service of High School, GED, GED Testing, and LEP on the Participation Hours Verification or the Mass Participation Hours Verification screen in the MWA System.

A teen parent who attends a full course of instruction of the secondary school can be “deemed” to be engaged in work. Actual hours of attendance are tracked and reported.

Unsupervised, informal study time is not a countable component of this activity.
