  • SANTA CRUZ >> Some 97 years after its founding, the Santa Cruz Adult School has merged with neighboring Watsonville/Aptos Adult School, creating a regional program supporting continuing education under the Pajaro Valley Unified School District.

    The program, founded in 1928 as an evening school, is expected to enfold some 500 Santa Cruz students into its approximately 3,500 student base, Bilicich said. Santa Cruz City Schools previously managed the Santa Cruz Adult School. City Schools Superintendent Kris Munro, who sits on countywide adult education governance team, said, “It is not about who owns it,” when it comes to programming.

  • Under a memorandum of understanding between City Schools and Pajaro Valley Unified, the Santa Cruz Adult Education program will bring with it seven full-time teachers, about 20 temporary teachers and most of the state funding controlled under the Adult Education Block Grant. Santa Cruz teachers will switch their employment to the Pajaro Valley Unified School District under similar, if not improved, compensation terms, Bilicich said.

    In May, Santa Cruz City Schools threw something of a going away party at its board meeting, serving cake and offering congratulations for the efforts of its adult school teachers. Molly Parks, district human resources assistant superintendent, told those gathered that at its height, Santa Cruz Adult School annually served about 10,000 students from about 35 different areas around the community, with 80 teachers and 10 staff members.

    Santa Rosa Adult School serves a variety of students, ages 16 to adult. Programs are conveniently located throughout Santa Rosa County, placing adult education within the reach of all who wish to attend.

    Programs offered include:
      Adult Basic Education
      High School Equivalency Test (GED® Test) Preparation Classes
      Adult High School Completion
      ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) for Adults
      High School Completion Courses for students co-enrolled in one of Santa Rosa County's 7 high schools

  • “As we move forward with some new-found funding and regulations from the state, it’s time for our Adult School to transform to a new chapter, a new beginning in our Santa Cruz Adult Ed,” Parks said. “We want to take this time to celebrate and thank the community, teachers, the staff for their continued support; for the many students who have walked through the doors.”
