Fall 2021 Community Education Program Update

  • Registration for Com Ed 128 Fall classes will begin on Thursday, July 22, 2021.
  • Catalogs will be mailed on Monday, August 9 2021.
  • During the Fall 2021 Community Education term there are 204 classes to choose from - 126 classes will be offered in-person at either Libertyville High School or Vernon Hills High School, 11 classes will be offered off-site at businesses that will also follow social distancing guidelines and 67 classes will be offered “Live Online”. 
  • Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the D128 Community Education Program is following Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) guidance and is requiring anyone participating in a program that takes place in a District 128 building to wear a face mask at all times, have a temperature check before entering the building, and practice social distancing until further notice.
  • Plus we have over 1,200 online classes through our partnerships with Education to Go and UGOTClass. Our classes primarily provide educational and personal growth opportunities for learners age 16 and above, but we also offer youth and family classes.
