• Community Education advisory council

    The community education department encourages involvement.  The department coordinates a general advisory council influencing all programs in the department and welcomes feedback around issues facing specific programs.
    The Community Education Advisory Council meets four times during the school year. Each meeting, members share news and happenings from their areas of the community and hear new ideas to consider implementing to improve and advance our programming and how we serve the community.

    The advisory council also hosts an annual breakfast, inviting local legislators and community representatives to learn more about programs serving the community and to discuss opportunities to collaborate and work together to serve our residents, students and our communities.
