Cassopolis expanding alternative and adult education program
The Cassopolis Public Schools are expanding its already successful alternative and adult education program.
According to Cassopolis Superintendent Tracy Hertsel, the district is making sure that a qualified teacher is there every night to help teach the core subject areas.
The classes run Monday through Thursdays.
“We are making sure we have a math teacher there one night, an English teacher there a night, science and then social studies,” he said. “Therefore it is giving the kids a better opportunity to get one on one or one on two maybe as far as highly qualified teaching, which is really helping the program.
“We are expanding to a point where we are picking up Odysseyware, which is an online program, but it offers a lot more options to kids as far as class offerings go. It can give them a combination of being online and working with an instructor. It gives them both options.”
Hertsel said a lot of kids and adults come back to work on completing their education.
To help with that, the alternative and adult education classes are available 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Thursday.
