Permanent Site Urged for Adult Classes

January 16, 1998|HOPE HAMASHIGE

About 20 adult-education students from nearly as many foreign countries urged trustees this week to find a permanent home for the programs in which they are enrolled.

"I like the school a lot," Mohammed Heravi, an English-as-a-second-language student from Iran, told the Newport-Mesa Unified School District board. "We need it to help our children. I must be able to help them with their homework and other things they need."

The adult-education programs were displaced recently when the district reopened Davis 5th and 6th Grade Center. The classes now are split between Harper School and a rented office, both in Costa Mesa.

The program participants said they prefer taking classes at one place because they have more opportunities to practice English when there are more students on campus.

Interim Supt. Robert Francy said the district is considering several potential locations for the programs, including two closed schools in Costa Mesa.
