Adoption Date

The Board believes that education is a continuous process throughout life and supports the position that the Corporation should cooperate with other community agencies in providing educational, cultural, and recreational opportunities for all of it’s citizens. The school, in this setting, becomes a force for community service and improvement; and the values the community seeks for children in the regular school program are, thus, available for all citizens through the community and/or adult education program.

With regard to community education, the Board may provide programs and facilities for the purpose of meeting the avocational, recreational, and cultural, interests of the community as well as the vocational/technical training and retraining needs of local workers.

With regard to adult education, the Board also shall provide a basic continuation program for anyone over the age of sixteen (16) who is not attending high school as an opportunity to complete the requirements for a high school diploma.
