RCS believes education doesn't end with graduation from either school or college. Rather, life should be filled with learning opportunities.
To that end, RCS offers Continuing Education courses for the community in the fall and spring of each year. Course offerings for the fall and spring semesters are mailed to all district residents in late August and early February. The Continuing Education program is self supporting.
Courses are open to all persons in the Capital District region. When necessary, priority is given to residents of the RCS Central School District. Classes are filled on a first-come, first-serve basis. The number of participants in each class is limited.
A five-hour pre-license class will be held from 3 to 8 p.m. on Monday, May 20 in Room 35 at the high school.
A defensive driving course will also be offered from 6 to 9 p.m. on BOTH Tuesday, May 21 and Wednesday, May 22 in room 35 at the high school. Participants must attend BOTH evenings.
Contact Continuing Education coordinator Patricia Hommel (email@example.com) with any questions.
