what is community ed?

learn new skills

Community ed classes are a great way to learn new skills hands on with others from the community. 

Class offerings, times and costs are found below in the semi-annual bulletin we publish and mail to area residents. Click here to view a copy online

driver's education

Driver’s Education consists of completing a classroom course first and then applying for behind the wheel training as a follow-up course. 

Students must be 15 by the time the course starts and there is a course cap. If the cap is met, the youngest students may be bumped to a waitlist if older students apply. 

Registration is online through Campus. Login to the parent portal, click Activity Registration and “New Registration”
