Adult Ed Program Registration on Wednesday, Sept. 14
A more than half-century tradition will continue when the Huntington School District's adult education program will hold its fall semester registration on Wednesday, September 14 in the Huntington High School lobby from 6-9 p.m. for a variety of interesting and informative courses, including eight new offerings. Mail-in registration will be accepted until classes begin.
Regular course fees are set at $15 for resident senior citizens (whenever space is available, except for those classes marked special fee or limited), $55 for other district residents and $65 for those living outside the Huntington School District. Fees can vary based on the specific course and the duration of the class. (One day seminars can run as little as $20 for residents.) Fall classes begin the week of Sept. 26.
The entire fall course bulletin can be found on the district's website at www.hufsd.edu; Click on the School Community tab and then on the Adult Education link and then "forms and files" to access the brochure.
