2450 - COMMUNITY AND ADULT EDUCATION

The School 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 its 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 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 high school continuation program for anyone over the age of sixteen (16) who is not attending high school in the schools of this Corporation as an opportunity to complete the requirements for a high school diploma.

The Superintendent shall develop and implement administrative guidelines whereby the schools are available to citizens of the Corporation for the above-stated purposes.
