The Spring 2014 Adult Education Program Guide is now available online. Download the Program Guide [PDF]. Classes begin in mid February. A printed guide will be mailed to all district residents in early February.
Please note the following correction to the printed guide:
You must register for all programs even though there may be no cost for the course. Registration occurs on a 'first-come, first-served' basis, so register early. Once your check is received, you are considered registered. You will not receive a registration confirmation, but you will be notified if a class is full or canceled. In the event that a program is canceled, you will receive a refund 30 days after receiving notification of the cancellation.
The Adult Education Program is intended for individuals 18 years of age and older. However, the age threshold may vary as indicated in course descriptions. For example, the defensive driving course is open to children as young as 16 and some courses are restricted to individuals 21 years of age and older. Limited exceptions may also be made at the instructor's discretion.
