What is Community Education?

Grounded in the core values of lifelong learning and citizen involvement, the Community Education Department is an integral component of Proctor Public Schools and Hermantown Community Schools. Proctor and Hermantown Community Education provides opportunities for local citizens, schools, agencies, businesses, and institutions to become active participants in the educational system. Learning extends beyond the K-12 setting, therefore through the development of strong partnerships and Community Education, each district is able to extend formal and informal learning opportunities to each community at large.

Each component of Community Education strives to provide a wide variety of learner-centered programs and services for learning, recreation, and community involvement.
