Reseda : Adult School Given 6-Year Accreditation

In recognition of the quality of its adult education curriculum, Reseda Community Adult School has been granted a six-year accreditation by the Western Assn. of Schools and Colleges.

The rating is the highest granted by the organization, culminating a yearlong evaluation of the school by a visiting delegation of California school district administrators. Reseda’s accreditation period runs through June 30, 2001.

Principal Martin Conroy said the group was especially impressed by the “continuing efforts to improve the school.”

“The action was taken after a careful study of the Visiting Committee Report which outlined the stellar aspects of the school,” the notification letter read in part.


Opened in 1957, the school offers a variety of classes for older adults. The courses are designed “to keep these people plugged into the world around them,” Conroy said.

The curriculum also includes classes in citizenship, conversational English, basic living skills for developmentally disabled individuals and programs to assist people in obtaining a high school diploma.

Registration for fall classes begins Monday and will continue through Thursday from 1 to 8 p.m. daily. The campus is at 18230 Kittridge St. For more information, call (818) 343-1977.
