History of Community Education
While Community Education can trace its origins back to the turn of the century, when evening classes were offered to Milwaukee
immigrants, the program didn't formalize in Prescott until the end of 1993.
The program was organized by a group of active and devoted residents who actively sought out potential instructors for a wide variety of classes.
The first catalog of classes was published and the first classes began in January of 1994.
Community Education is designed to provide classes and opportunities in a wide variety of subjects and interests to local residents.
Ideas and suggestions are always welcome! This is your program...help make it what you'd like it to be!
Administration & Advisory Board
Welcome! Community Education is such a great program for all involved, and I believe we truly are lucky to have
a supportive community and school board in Prescott to sustain such a program. We work har d to offer
a wide variety of opportunities for our residents here in Prescott, while welcoming those from the surrounding
areas. We are open to your suggestions in programming and for possible instructors. Community Education is a
community program and we want it to fit your needs. We are fortunate to have an active Community Education
Advisory Board that act as the eyes and ears of the community and pro vide me with many of the ideas for the
programming we offer. If you'd like to talk with someone about Community Education, or if you have any
suggestions for programming and instructors, please feel free to contact me at 715-262-4676
