Community Education Director - Angi Kaase
Community Education seeks to improve the quality of life by providing lifelong learning opportunities for all members of the community. Lifelong learning is based on the belief that people are learners at every age and are entitled to pursue educational opportunities that are meaningful to them.
The process of community involvement in planning learning activities is the cornerstone of Community Education. Through a partnership of advisory councils and professional staff, community needs are identified and local resources are used to respond to those needs.
We believe that Community Education fosters the learning process in a variety of places and under a variety of conditions. It provides planned learning experiences and activities intended to meet the needs of individuals, families, and the community. By participating in Community Education programs, community members can develop new skills, pursue intellectual and physical interests, and develop a positive self-image.
Community Education looks for ways to connect not only citizens to the school, but also to each other. When a need is identified, we strive to find a way to meet that need by utilizing resources within our own community. We need to know what the community needs and wants. Our ears are always open. We welcome visitors in our office, phone calls, or emails anytime with ideas and feedback.
