Interested participants may fill out a survey on the district's Community Education web page to share which courses they are interested in attending and what they would like to see included in the program, according to the release. The website also includes a link for potential instructors to submit proposals for specific courses. The deadline to submit ideas for Fall 2018 is May 1.
Locations will be chosen at a later date, and online courses could also be offered, according to the announcement.
The goal is to offer courses that appeal to people of different ages and serve as enrichment, recreation, self-improvement and academic preparation, said Lori Montelongo, assistant director of Extended Learning, in the announcement.
“Community Education gives all of our community members an opportunity to become lifelong learners, which is an important attribute in the district’s Profile of a Graduate, and gives our District the ability to engage and partner with our community in a new way,” Montelongo said.
The program is tuition based and self-supported, according to the FBISD website. Class fees will provide financial support.
“We want the courses to be affordable so that they are mutually beneficial for the community members and district as a whole,” Montelongo said.
