In the News…

More and more parents are going back to school in Escondido! ESL classes have been offered at Escondido Union High School District through its Adult School campus and elementary schools for many years. In order to reach even more parents, this year, morning classes at the five neighborhood elementary schools in the district were added. More than 150 parents are currently participating in the program. After dropping their students off at school, the parents then head to class themselves. By improving their English skills, parents will be in a better position to help their young students succeed in school, too. Click here to read the full story in The San Diego Union Tribune.

Over the years, there has been a growing shortage of skilled craft professionals. Due to this, apprenticeships are in high demand because they provide the skilled trades necessary within our country’s infrastructure. In an effort to turn this increasing shortages of craft professionals around, select Adult Schools within the ETCN offer pre-apprenticeship programs. These classes provide the training necessary to begin a promising career with good pay, benefits and endless opportunities. When students at our Adult Schools take the apprenticeship pathway, they are not only benefitting themselves and their families, but are helping the construction industry as a whole prosper.
