These modules work with students to address barriers that prevent them from going back to school or changing careers. This is a great choice for students who are not sure they can commit to a full-semester course. Each module will meet once a week for four sessions and is independent of the other modules. This allows students to take one or more of the modules over the course of the semester. Each completed module earns a student one quarter credit towards a high school diploma. Community members are also welcome.
