Vision & Mission
The Sierra County Adult Education School is dedicated to supporting the District’s vision that all students can succeed academically by meeting every adult learner where they are in their life’s journey and assist them with attaining their goals of higher learning and employability skills.
The Adult School mission is that every adult student will be supported and encouraged in a safe and comfortable learning environment, equipping them with the skills and tools to be successful in the current job market.
This mission will be accomplished by:

- Providing opportunities to obtain short and long term job skill certifications that lead directly into new employment or advancement with their current employer.
