The Sierra County Schools for Adults came to be part of the SPJUSD in 2019.
Wendy Jackson, the Director and Principal for the Adult Education School has a passion for all adult learners to attain their goals of higher learning and improve upon their employability skills.
Partnered with the community, SCSA held “Town Hall” meetings to hear what the needs were in our county from our residents, businesses and agencies. From those meetings several courses were developed. Across the county, the communities and business owners identified several areas of need that included training for the Hospitality Industry, Early Childhood Development, Emergency Services and High School Diploma options.
For hospitality services SCSA partners with Lake Tahoe Community College and FRC and hosts Guest Service Boot Camps, where employees learn many different skills to serve their customers. Coming soon, we will have our new building complete, which will have several cook stations and classes offered on food safety, prep cooking, and chef level training!
SCSA currently offers CPR/First Aid classes for the Health Care Providers, Community members, and a special course for babysitters. Along with EMR, EMT, and Advanced EMT courses. These courses are certified through NorCal MT and NREMT (National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians), and taught by Corina Tidwell, who is a Paramedic and assisted by Leah Turner. We also provide professional development courses for the Health Care Providers in partnership with EPHC.
SCSA has ongoing enrollment for High School Diploma and GED courses. Open to all potential students 18 years up. It is never too late to finish what you started!
We have three teachers on staff to bring our students current with the credits that they need to complete: Wendy Jackson, Amber Williams, and Niecea Freeman.
SCSA offers Basic Computer Classes as well; where you can learn to use any device, learn computer terminology, to help you navigate technology, stay connected to family and friends, assist with identifying scams and much more. We are partnering with Sierra County Department of Health to expand these classes to our community seniors and disabled through a grant that is targeted for reducing isolation and increasing interactions with family and friends and connections to businesses and services outside of the community.
We have also partnered with First 5 and Sierra Nevada Children’s Council, in offering support through coaching and professional development, for anyone interested in entering the Early Childhood Development Profession.
