Welcome to the Garrard County Community Education information page. I hope you enjoy our news and find the information helpful.
Community Education is a wide array of things, and not one program across the state is identical to another. The beauty of the program is that it is often designed based upon the community needs and interests. It is also designed to support our district students and their families. If you have ideas for classes, or know of a need in the community that perhaps the community education program could assist with, please feel free to e-mail me. Together, hand in hand, we can develop programs that will improve the quality of life and future for all.
