Tremont Avenue alternative school closing as city revamps GED program

Department of Education officials are planning to close several alternative high school sites in order to improve the city's GED program.

Alternative sites, like the one on Tremont Avenue, are a place where people can go and get their GED's. But Department of Education officials say attendance at the sites is less than 60 percent, so they are going to overhaul the whole system. The Tremont Avenue site is just one of the many locations closing its doors.

The Department of Education feels that by combining some of the locations it will help improve the quality of the GED program. Some students who attend the sites that are closing are not happy with the news.
