Skoolie

As Community Education programs grow, our need for programming space has become a barrier to offering new and fun opportunities for both youth and families. We know there are families in our district that may not have transportation or financial means to attend our programming. So...we're bringing programming to you!

Community Education has transformed a school bus for community programming. A Skoolie (or Schoolie) by definition is a school bus that is converted into a recreational vehicle. We are so excited to bring innovative programming to South Washington County School through this new mobile classroom.

Skoolie allows Community Education to offer convenient, affordable activities for kids to do on weeknights, non-school days, summer, and even weekends.
