EES provides – at no cost – a review of fundamentals in math, writing, or reading skills for students whose COMPASS scores are too low for enrollment in regular JCTC classes.
A joint program of JCTC and JCPS Adult and Continuing Education, EES (pronounced “ease”) classes meet during the fall and spring semesters on both the Downtown and Southwest JCTC campuses. Besides a review of fundamentals, EES instructors also teach basic computer skills, discuss study strategies, and provide information about campus resources.
Students who complete EES are better prepared for the transition into JCTC developmental or credit courses.
ESL students are eligible for the EES ESL class if the reading score is between 40 and 64; in addition, the grammar score and/or the listening score must be above 40.
