Affordable Classes

Classes in certain categories receive financial support from the State of California. These classes are indicated by an * in the quarterly Schedule of Classes and they include:

  • English as a Second Language
  • Citizenship
  • Vocational training and keyboarding classes
  • Classes for persons with disabilities
  • Parent education including preschool parent participation and child observation classes
  • Several home economics, health and safety classes

The majority of funding for state-mandated classes is provided by state tax money and is based on student attendance hours. As a result, the class fees for students are significantly less for these state-supported classes. All other Adult School classes are supported entirely by enrollment and lab fees.
