Message from the Superintendent
Despite all the cut-backs to education funding, our Adult Education program in West Contra Costa Unified remains a vital service to our community, and we intend to do all we can to keep it strong. In hard economic times our core Adult Education
programs provide a bridge to the learning that’s important in gaining the skills that remain in demand in the workforce.
Learning is a life-long quest and our Adult Education programs provide a low cost, convenient and fulfilling way to keep the doors to learning open, particularly for the parents of our regular school population. West Contra Costa Adult Education helps our families gain basic skills and knowledge so that they can better support their children in school.
But WCCAE continues to provide courses for adults without children in our district as well as for parents of students. Our program includes Arts & Crafts, Business & Finance, Communications, Food Service, GED, Health & Fitness, specific job training, English as a Second Language and more. This catalogue provides all the information you need to register and get started in the Winter term.
So I invite you to try us out. If you take just one course, I’m confident you’ll be back for others. Nearly all our students take more than one course. Once they’ve joined us, our students see how helpful our Adult School can be and join thousands of others in lifelong learning.
Bruce Harter, Superintendent
