Northwest Suburban High School District 214 Community Education fall semester began Monday with a curriculum of 270 classes available at various times over coming months.
"This is an exciting time for Community Education as a lot of thought went into the design of this semester's classes," said Teresa Palaggi, continuing education supervisor.
Among the hundreds of offerings are a wide variety of computer classes, including six that are designated as part of the fast-track program. The program is designed for those wanting to "become workforce ready in one semester," Palaggi said.
It targets those re-entering the workforce and changing or developing their careers. A 10 percent discount will be given to anyone who will sign up for any three or more computer classes.
For those wanting to improve or gain culinary experience, there are 43 cooking classes to choose from this fall semester.
"We have the best variety of classes in the area that are inexpensive," Palaggi said. "We offer classes on healthy cooking, holiday cooking, and fun cooking for adult and child."
Fees for culinary classes start at $49.
Classes are at Forest View Educational Center, 2121 S. Goebbert Road, Arlington Heights.
