Stakeholders.

Effective Monday, March 23, the Regional Office of Education will be closed to walk-in traffic until further notice. Individuals who need GED transcripts may request them by completing the online form and submitting it to our office through the mail or email.  Requests to pick up copies in person will be arranged individually.

Office staff will continue to work remotely and will be able to answer calls and emails without disruption.  We will restore normal office operations and lift the walk-in ban when it is deemed safe to do so.
