Petaluma Adult School will join with other California adult schools in honoring teachers and students in programs that prepare students for higher education and employment.  The week’s theme is, “Today’s Students, Tomorrow’s Workforce.”

Petaluma Adult School - the only K-12 adult school in Sonoma County -  is an integral part of Petaluma City Schools and a member of the Sonoma County Adult Education Consortium.  The school provides a range of free and low-cost classes including high school diploma, GED/HiSET test preparation, English classes for non-native speakers, citizenship preparation and career and technical education programs.  During Adult Education Week the spotlight is on jobs and employment.  Faculty and students will meet with Petaluma State Assembly Representative, Marc Levine, to participate in the California Council for Adult Education Legislative Action Day in Sacramento on April 4.

Principal Carol Waxman, the 2016 (Association of California School Administrator) Adult Education Administrator of the year, says, “Our priority is assisting students in attaining their workforce, family and personal goals.”
