Medicare is a complex issue and it doesn’t appear our government will simplify anything soon.

There are significant differences between Medicare Supplement and Medicare Advantage plans...in coverage and cost. Part D (prescription) plans also contribute to the confusion. Regardless if you will soon become eligible for Medicare or you have been a participant for some time, this program will provide information about enrollment, eligibility, coverage, cost and options.

Practical Introduction to Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) - NEW! (Ages 15+)

Articles about UAVs and robot airplane “drones” have been in the newspapers and magazines and on the T.V. news, but few have actually been up close to one. This course will introduce you to this new technology. UAVs, and the aerial photography they can provide, promise to be a very useful tool for a wide range of applications. The course is offered by North American Robotics (NAR) - a local start-up company that builds, maintains, and operates a fleet of small scale, hand launched and recovered UAVs. Students who wish to continue training, can sign up with the instructor, for additional UAV Ground School, Mission Planning, Aerial Photography/Remote Sensing, and 6 hours of hands-on UAV Flight Training with NAR. #3467 Wed, April 24 Twin Oaks Middle School Dr. Michael Vogt

Medicare: What You Really Need to Know

Medicare is a complex issue and it doesn’t appear our government will simplify anything soon. Seniors pay a much larger share of their income in out-of-pocket health costs than non-seniors do...understanding the differences in the plans offered can reduce your cost. There are significant differences between Medicare Supplement and Medicare Advantage plans...in coverage and cost. Part D (prescription) plans also contribute to the confusion. Regardless if you will soon become eligible for Medicare or you have been a participant for some time, this program will provide information about enrollment, eligibility, coverage, cost and options. #4050 Thu, April 25 Twin Oaks Middle School Jim Matson

Thursday, March 14 7 p.m. Prior Lake High School Science and Machine Collide in Commercial Scale Composting The Shakopee Mdewakanton Sioux Community operates the Organics Recycling Facility, a commercial scale compost facility. Microorganisms do the real work of transforming once-living organic waste items such as yard debris, food residuals, and paper products into compost. Most organic waste in the U.S. is still buried in landfills where it generates methane that mostly escapes into the atmosphere and warms our planet. Methane is a greenhouse gas that is 23 times more powerful than carbon dioxide. Compost benefits plants by providing nutrients, improving soil structure, and increasing soil water holding capacity. Compost operators utilize a variety of equipment and methods to provide air, water, food, and habitat for those microorganisms to thrive. This talk will summarize the science of composting and the equipment that the Organics Recycling Facility utilizes to create optimal conditions for microorganisms to do their work. Presented by: Michael B. Whitt, Natural Resources Manager, Land Department, Shakopee Mdewakanton Sioux Community

District 719 Community Education Services


We’re Looking For YOU... The person with a special interest, talent or subject knowledge that you’d like to share with others. We are looking for teachers willing to add a little “class” to the lives in Prior Lake-Savage. You don’t have to be a licensed teacher. Enthusiasm combined with knowledge of a subject or skill in a special interest area will be enough to get you started. Those of us in Community Education are here to provide assistance on class content, handout production and more. We’ll let you know what we expect, how we will promote your classes and do all we can to help you succeed. You’ll receive an instructor’s handbook with all the practical details you need to know, feedback from class participants and appreciation for your efforts. But it’s not just about Community Ed, it’s about you contributing to your community to make it a better place to be and your own personal growth.

We can’t do it without YOU! Call us at 952-226-0080. Let’s get together and talk possibilities. Instructor Spotlight

Claudia Carlos

Claudia was born and raised in Monterrey, Mexico where she has a large extended family. She and her husband, Hector, and their two young daughters have lived in Minnesota for more than nine years. She loves teaching Spanish and strives to provide a lively, interactive class.

Advisory Councils

are active taskoriented groups who make recommendations about policies, procedures, program offerings, budgets, and more for ISD 719 Community Education Services programs. Together these groups determine what resources could be utilized to meet the needs and interests of community members without duplicating the efforts provided by others. If you would be interested in working with a council to address the lifelong learning needs of our district, please call Leanne Weyrauch, Director at 952-226-0082, to request an application for membership.

Call 952.226.0080 during office hours (8 a.m. to 4 p.m.) or email us at CommunityEd@priorlake-savage.k12.mn.us

Be an “Early Bird�

Prompt registration helps avoid disappointment when classes fill quickly or have to cancel due to low enrollment, only to find that late registrations would have allowed the class to run. Early registrations also make it easier if we need to contact you for any reason before your class begins.

Refunds

Your money will be refunded if your class is cancelled due to insufficient enrollment. If you choose to cancel your class registration, to be eligible for a full refund we need to receive your request no later than 4:00 p.m. five (5) business days prior to the first day of class. Cancellations for classes with supply fees must be received five (5) business days prior to the first day of class unless otherwise noted in description. Refunds of supplies are not issued after that time due to commitments made to instructors. Cancellations received after five business days will be subject to no refund. A $10 processing fee will be deducted from any refund.

Discounts

Adults (55 & over) receive discounts when noted in class pricing. All UCare Minnesota members may take one class with a discount of $15. If the class is less than $15, it is free. UCare Member ID must be provided at the time of registration. Sign up with a friend to receive 10% off your total up to $15. Registrations must be made within the same business day and they must be requested at the time of registration. Discounts cannot be done online please call, mail or drop off your registration to receive discounts.

Community Education reserves the right to withdraw a course due to lack of enrollment or loss of a suitable facility. If we have to cancel a class, every effort will be made to contact all the participants who preregistered. Please include on your registration form a phone number where you can be contacted during the day. Community Education assumes no responsibility for reaching registrants who do not provide an accessible daytime phone number. When ever possible messages will be left on voicemail/answering machines. If an email is provided at time of registration, notifications will also be sent to the address provided. Classes may be cancelled due to inclement weather or for other unavoidable reasons. These sessions are made up whenever possible. If school closes during the day due to bad weather, Community Education will cancel all activities.

Are You In?

Yes - unless you hear from us. Community Education does not mail class confirmations. If you have an email address at the time of registration, a confirmation will be emailed to you. If you do not hear from us, assume that you are in the class and that it will be held at the time and place indicated. We will contact you by phone or mail if there is a change. Please list a daytime phone number so we can reach you if a class is cancelled. If there is a last minute change, signs are posted at each site with your class information on it such as class title, room numbers and times of classes.

Privacy

The information requested on the registration forms will be used to verify eligibility as well as determine staff, facility and equipment needs. Your registration information may be provided to school district staff, volunteers, instructors, the school district attorney, insurer and auditor. Your email information is for internal use only and will not be sold or solicited. Photographs or videos of classes in action may be taken and used for district publications and web pages. If you object to having your picture used, please notify the Community Education Office at 952-226-0080 each time you register.
