ISD 279 - Osseo Area Schools - Youth


DRAWING DESIGNS 2,000 hours is a terrible thing to waste!

Did you know that a child spends more time out of school than in school.  Over 2,000 hours a year adds up to a child's 'free time' and how it is spent is at the discretion of his/her family.  This is important time for developing social skills, building key relationships, exploring interests and keeping skills sharp!  Community Education programs are high-quality programs built on best practices and here to help you fill those hours with meaningful options that fit your families schedule and priorities. 

Choose from a wide variety Osseo Area Schools Community Education programs.  Thousands of delighted customers enroll including children who attend ISD 279 schools, home schools, private and charter schools, and even from other communities.  All programs are fee-based and optional, not a part of the regular ISD 279 curriculum.  But all programs support the mission, goals and learning outcomes of Osseo Area Schools.  This unique relationship assures that your child will continue to learn in a safe, high-quality program.
