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
(www.educationtocareer.net). 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.
