THANK YOU PLSAS Community

Thank you Prior Lake-Savage Area Schools voters! Both school funding requests on the November 7 ballot were approved. • Question 1 bond funds: 62.16% yes • Question 2 operating levy increase: 62.42% yes These voter-approved funds are investments in our community’s future and will help ensure our students have the spaces, staff and materials they need to succeed. The two school funding requests on the November 7 ballot were based on months of planning by a 50-member community Facilities Task Force, district staff and the School Board following a failed attempt in 2016. Meanwhile, the school district continued to grow: • Since 2000, PLSAS has averaged more than 225 additional students per year.

• Most schools are already at or over capacity, and more families keep moving in. • Projections indicate the growth will continue, with more than 2,100 additional K-12 students anticipated in the next ten years. Moving forward, we will be sure to communicate next steps with our community including design phases, timelines and construction updates for our building additions, new elementary school and new Bridges Area Learning Center, so that everyone can see their investment come to life. On behalf of our 8,500 students and more than 1,000 staff, thank you again for your support. It is so very appreciated! Be well,

Teri Staloch, Ed. D. Superintendent #WeArePLSAS

Our Mission The mission of the Prior Lake-Savage Area Community Education Services Program is to enhance the

quality of life for all citizens by helping to provide opportunities for individuals to reach their full potential and contribute to their communities. To accomplish this mission requires that parents, family, schools, faith communities, businesses, community organizations and all people living within our community work together. This can be done through a cooperative effort in meeting the recreational, educational, social and cultural needs and wants of the community.

Are 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 952-226-0085. Let’s get together and talk possibilities.

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.

Guidelines and Procedures Questions?

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

UCare members may be eligible for a $15 discount on most classes in this catalog. If a class is less than $15, the member may take the class for free. UCare for Seniors and EssentiaCare members may take one $15 discount per class per calendar year. Members must be a UCare member at the time of the registration and throughout the duration of the class. Members need to include their UCare ID numbers when registering. Some restrictions may apply. UCare Choices and Fairview Choices members are ot eligible for the $15 class discount. The 10% friend discount is offered via phone, in-person and online. Discount online will be applied at the payment screen. The same class must be in your shopping cart in order to receive discount.

Cancellation

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. Call 952-2260080 for evening or weekend cancellation information.

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.

Participant Waiver

Registration for any class waives all rights and claims for any and all injuries from whatever cause suffered by participation in activities.

Satisfaction Guarantee

Please call the Community Education Office at 952.226.0080 if you are not satisfied with any class or activity in which you participated.

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 952226-0080 each time you register.

Non-endorsement Policy

Prior Lake-Savage Community Education works with specialist in their fields who are interested in presenting classes in their areas of expertise to the community. We do not endorse the opinions or business affiliations of the instructors. All financial seminars are carefully screened to ensure they are strictly informational in nature. Although most seminars are presented by professional financial planners, the design is nonbiased and non-sales oriented. You will not be pressured to make a purchase or meet with sales people. We prohibit the direct distribution of flyers, pamphlets or marketing materials that promote specific products, services or companies. We do, however, offer you the opportunity to receive an instructor’s business card or you can ask for more information should you have additional, specific questions that go beyond the content or time frame of the seminar. We hope your participation in these programs will be enjoyable. For questions, call Jenny at 952-226-0085.

Special Requests

If special assistance/accommodations is needed to participate in a Community Education Program, please contact us at least 2 weeks prior to start of program to allow enough time for special accommodations.
