Option Pathway Program - TASC


The Option Pathway is designed for students who have failed major core courses and are in the ninth, tenth, eleventh or twelfth grade. A second-semester junior or a senior must already be enrolled in and passing a CTE pathway unless the school has a CTE pathway that requires only one year to complete.


Students will earn a high school diploma and be counted as a graduate if they:

  • Attend a TASC™ Preparation class and pass the TASC™ Tests as given.
  • Complete the four (4) required core courses in a WVDE CTE skilled pathway concentration. Programs may vary depending on what is offered in your county.
  • Must complete the End-of-Concentration Performance Assessment.

MCTEC does not discriminate on the basis of gender, race, color, religion, disability, or national origin in employment or educational programs or activities.

Lack of English language skills is not a barrier to participation in any course.
