They say “Time flies when you are having fun”. We must be having fun, because it is hard to imagine we are already in the Fall semester of 2018 at Placer School for Adults. Seriously though, it is fun and gratifying to be building the Placer School for Adults programs and to offer classes and support to our community and our region.

With the new Career Center and new Lynn MacDonald Education Center main campus locations we are adding more classes, more choices and reaching more people. We are extremely excited to be able to serve our students and expand our classes in Rocklin. A special thank you to Placer County Employment Services and our new partner, Destiny Community Center for opening up your facilities to our students (Please see Page 6-7 for a list of classes offered at Destiny). We are thrilled to hear of the many success stories of people who came to PSA to build skills and then gain new or improved employment and also the stories of those who have transitioned to college.

The “Get Hired” Series has boomed with so many more FREE classes and topics. People tell us they found encouragement, hope, new tips, new skills, new friends, and new thinking about the current job market, and how to be successful in their search for their next job/career. The Placer County Employment Services has been integrated into our program and provides added skilled instruction on dozens of topics for those looking for new careers and guidance on how to navigate through such a time of transition.

Please stop by, register, and send someone you know to Placer School for Adults. Our catalog is growing with many new classes and varied topics of interest.

We are having fun in the foothills at Placer School for Adults serving our community, come and join the fun!

Bill Bettencourt, Principal
