Welcome Back!

Welcome back to another fun and exciting year of learning and personal growth.  Fall quarter starts on September 24th and registration is open now!  We have many exciting and informative classes to meet a variety of learning needs.  We are excited to announce the addition of the New World of Work program to our line-up as part of our initiative to support workforce development in the Davis area.  This exciting program is already in use in many community colleges and adult schools throughout the state and even the most seasoned worker can benefit from adding these skills to their resume.  New to the line-up in Fall is a new approach to language instruction with our Italian Conversation and Tasting class.  We're also continuing the Meditation class that was added in Spring along with our most popular fitness classes.  Whether you're planning a trip abroad, want to bring out your inner artist, or just want a fun evening activity to do with family and friends, there is a little something for everyone.  We look forward to seeing old friends and making many new ones this Fall. 

WASC Accreditation - Update

Davis Adult and Community Education has been awarded "Advancement to Candidacy" by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges.  This is an important first step in receiving full accreditation.  Over the course of this coming school year, we will be refining and implementing our Action Plan, gathering input from Stakeholders, and reviewing Data to identify areas of strength and areas for growth.  We hope that you will join us on this exciting journey!  


What is WASC Accreditation?

Accreditation is a voluntary dual-purpose process that schools (1) must be worthy of the trust placed in them to provide high-quality learning and (2) clearly demonstrate continual self-improvement.

An accredited school is focused on a mission and goals for students; it is student-oriented and examines its students’ performance continuously; it accepts objective evaluation from a team of outside peer professionals trained by ACS WASC; it maintains a qualified faculty within an effectively organized school; it collaboratively assesses the quality of its educational programs on a regular basis; and it plans for the future.


How can our community participate in our planning and review process?

A key component of the WASC review process is stakeholder input.  Stakeholders include school leadership, instructors, students, and community members.  Stakeholders can provide input by responding to surveys (i.e. class evaluations), attending community meetings, and by participating directly in planning focus groups.  The WASC review process focuses on a continuous cycle of improvement and is therefore ongoing and continuous.  If you are interested in participating now or in the future in our school planning process, please contact our office to be added to future communications about ways that you can participate.


You can review our current WASC Report and Action Plan here.

New Classes are added all of the time!

We are always looking for new and innovative classes to enhance our program, so if you have a skill that you think people would be interested in learning and want to teach others, please contact us through email at das@djusd.net or by filling out the Course Proposal form under "Employment".  We look forward to seeing you in one of our upcoming classes and Happy Learning!
