You MUST pre-pay for classes at least one week in advance to secure your registration. If we do not receive prepayment, there may still be room in the class, but we cannot guarantee all supplies will be available or even that the class will run if no one has registered in advance.

Classes are offered at school throughout our districts. Locations are indicated on each class.  Once you are registered, we will inform you as tot he exact room of your class.

Book Deposits
A $25 book deposit is required for all textbooks loaned to students.  Upon the return of the book we will gladly refund the deposit.

Students in the diploma classes are expected to be present at ALL classes.  If you are unable to attend a class it is YOUR responsibility to contact the instructor and/or Adult Ed. Office. If you miss more than 2 classes, you may be required to withdraw from the course.  Credits are given based on the number of hours of class time as well as successful completion of class work.

If our district's students are released early due to a storm, Adult Education classes are automatically cancelled. If school is cancelled due to inclement weather, it will be announced on local television stations and websites, such as WABI-TV,
