The costs of running classes are built into the fee structure. In most classes, 5 students are required to start a class at the stated fee. If fewer than 5 students enroll in the class, hours of instruction may be decreased or the fee may be increased for the class to continue.
Note Due to state budget cuts that have been imposed on California Adult Schools there is no state funding for classes. The entire cost of instruction, use of facilities, clerical and administrative support is built into the fee structure. Fees have been set to provide maximum services at the lowest possible cost to students. Senior discounts do not apply.
