Buckeye Career Center 2020 Re-Start Plan Information
Buckeye Career Center has extended the blending learning model through November 6, 2020. Students are expected to participate in remote academic learning on the days they are not in-person at school. The schedule remains the same with seniors attending in-person October 26, 27, 28 and November 2 and 3. Juniors will attend in-person October 29 and 30 and November 4, 5, and 6th. Because Tuscarawas County is now a Level 3- Red county, per our re-start plan, temperature checks will be performed each day at school. Those with temperatures of 100 degrees or more will report to the nurse and/or return home. Students and staff should always continue to self-monitor prior to ever leaving home.

Buckeye Career Center offers the official, computer-based GED Test on-site at the school's testing center. Prior to testing, prospective testers need to set up a personalized account and register online through GED.com. The personal GED page is also where students can pay for and take the "GED Ready" practice tests in the four subjects (Math, Reasoning Through Language Arts, Science, Social Studies), as well as view test results with same-day scoring. Testers are encouraged not to take all four GED subjects at the testing center in the same day.
