WHERE: Patterson High School Teacher Learning Center, 200 N. Seventh St. on Wednesday and Orestimba High School Library in Newman on Thursday.
DETAILS: Two community meetings are scheduled to gauge community support and interest in attending classes/workforce training programs through Modesto Junior College on the West Side. Modesto Junior College is planning to offer more classes on the West Side and the cities of Patterson and Newman and the Patterson Joint Unified School District and Newman-Crows Landing School District want to get an MJC satellite facility built on the West Side. Currently, MJC lacks funding to staff the facility, but in the meantime the school districts and the Stanislaus County Office of Education are all offering space free of charge for their use.
Community members, parents and students are invited to attend one or both of these meetings so administrators can gauge community support and interest.
