Region 16 offering classes for adults


The Region 16 school district is offering a host of adult education courses beginning in late January.

The classes are open to anyone 16 years old or older, who live in Beacon Falls and Prospect or any surrounding community and isn’t currently enrolled in a high school program.

The 11 classes offered, which include courses in American Sign Language, gardening, conversational Spanish, and line dancing, are for adults who wish to continue their education or want to take a class for enjoyment. Adults interested in taking high school equivalency courses or basic education courses can do so through Waterbury Adult Education.

All courses are $42, which includes a $4 registration fee, and most consist of 10 classes. Courses for senior citizens, age 55 and older, are $24 including the registration fee. Courses begin the week of Jan. 30 and run through late March. Classes are held on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays.

The deadline to register for a course is Jan. 23. Courses must be paid for in full prior to the start of the class. Anyone unable to attend classes after registering for a course will only be refunded the tuition cost before the first class. After the first class there will be no refunds.
