Principal's Message

Spring / Summer 2017

As the spring semester approaches, the work of the Education to Career Network, of which Escondido Adult School is a member, is moving into full swing. Several major components of its action plan are being implemented which include the enhancement of student transitions services, increased marketing, and a computer device check-system for students.


In recent weeks, an expanded marketing campaign has begun which includes targeted Facebook ads; advertising throughout the North County Transit System including buses and the Sprinter; paid spots on cable channels; updated collateral materials; and a more robust website ( With the addition of a new transitions coordinator, students now receive increased individualization attention to navigate through programs at the adult school; between the adult school and other postsecondary options; and into employment. Another student support is the availability of a computer check out system for students who wish to accelerate their progress but who may not have access to devices at home.


Finally, on a more personal note, after 38 years in adult education, I will be retiring at the end of this school year. It has been an honor and pleasure to be part of the Escondido community as well as the Escondido Union High School District, all of whom have been extremely supportive of our programs. Escondido Adult School has been in existence for nearly fifty years, and it will continue to be a relevant provider of educational services for the citizens of Escondido.
