The Vallecitos School District approved an agreement with the Palomar Community College District to provide English as a second language classes to community members on the Vallecitos Elementary School campus.

The 5-0 Vallecitos board vote, Aug. 13, approved the facilities agreement for the use of the Rainbow elementary school. The classes will be taught by Palomar College staff at no charge to the parents or other community members.

“We are very excited,” Maritza Koeppen, superintendent of Vallecitos School District and principal of Vallecitos Elementary School, said.

The agreement is effective through June 30, 2020, although it could be renewed. Palomar College sought to teach at least 20 students, and approximately 30 adults signed up for the classes from 6-7:50 p.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays.

“We have a good turnout,” Koeppen said. “We’re just very excited to have the parents involved in learning English. They can help support their students as well at home as they learn English.”
