Welcome to Community Education!

Community Education is a unique education concept that embraces these beliefs:

  • Education is a lifelong process;
  • Everyone in the community - individuals, businesses, public and private agencies -- shares responsibility for educating all members of the community; and
  • Citizens have a right and a responsibility to be involved in determining community needs, identifying community resources, and linking those needs and resources to their community.

Community Education results in:

  • A responsive education system and an improved learning climate in the schools;
  • Efficient and cost-effective ways of delivering education and community services;
  • Broad-based community support for schools and other community agencies;
  • An emphasis on special populations, such as at-risk youth and minorities; and
  • Collective action among all educational and community agencies to address quality of life issues. 

Working together - through Community Education - communities can address such concerns as: child care and extended day care programs; senior citizen services; student achievement and school effectiveness; community pride and support for schools; unemployment/underemployment; literacy/diploma and degree completion; community economic development; and many other community ideas.
