Chabot-San Leandro Education Center Opens For Business with Compelling
Roster of Fall
Classes Chabot College and San Leandro School District Collaborate on New
Education Center for Mt. Eden Area
(Hayward, CA) - The Chabot-San Leandro Education Center kicks off its inaugural
semester on August 27 with a roster of 15 classes that span the gamut from
Humanities and Language Arts, to Math and Business. Students can also choose
from Beginning and Intermediate Sign Language, Real Estate Principles, and
an English as a Second Language (ESL) course designed to help students function
within an academic environment. Class registration will take place during
the first week of classes at the center, located at 1448 Williams Street in
San Leandro. Fees are just $20 per unit and students may also register online
Development of the Center has been underway for the past year through the
generosity of an $800,000 grant from the Wayne and Gladys Valley Foundation,
a major philanthropic institution established 30 years ago to provide financial
assistance to various endeavors in the East Bay. The gift was made to the
Chabot College Foundation.
“As a native of San Leandro and Chabot College alum, I’m very
proud to serve on a Foundation that brings higher education courses to my
community,” said Foundation Vice-Chair Gordon Galvan.
Approximately $500,000 of the grant went toward the construction of the facility,
located next to John Muir School, at a site that is shared with the San Leandro
Adult School. The center is open to the public and adult school students are
encouraged to take classes, along with high school students in the region
who can enroll concurrently.
“The Center offers yet another pathway for students seeking entry-level
classes to refine basic skills, pursue a college degree, or begin training
for a career,” says Dr. Rosemary Delia, Director of the Chabot-San Leandro
Education Center. For more information, please contact Dr. Delia at (510)
723-6755 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Under the management of the San Leandro Unified School District, the Center
will serve both adult and traditional student populations. Chabot College
will provide management and instruction for its future extension campus with
adult training and seminars, summer school programs for children, and in-service
training programs for the K-12 faculty of the San Leandro School District.
These programs will be designed to improve instruction and increase the number
of high school seniors transitioning into institutions of higher education.
