TELL CITY - Students attending the Perry County Learning Academy have earned 65 credits this semester, according to a report by Executive Director Mike Bishop to its two-member board of directors Jan. 8.

The state Education Department notified him Dec. 5, he said, the learning academy is eligible for $7,584 from its adult-education division for the period Feb. 1 to June 30. He also noted that under a collaboration with Joe Hall and the Perry County Lifelong Learning Network, 43 students enrolled in GED-preparation classes during 2007.

Thirty-nine Tell City-Troy Township and eight Perry Central students are taking credit-recovery courses, intended to overcome delays toward graduation, through the alternative school. Eight people from the Tell City school district and three from the Perry Central district are pursuing adult secondary credits, which also lead to high-school diplomas.

The academy served 92 students in 2007, Bishop reported Friday.
