Community Education




               The Independence School District Community Education Program seeks to improve quality of life by providing lifelong learning opportunities for all members of the community.  Lifelong learning is based on the belief that people are learners at every age and are entitled to pursue educational opportunities that are meaningful to them.


Through Community Education, community members will be given the opportunity to gain new skills that make them more marketable in the workforce and expand their knowledge base. We offer interesting and affordable adult classes in a safe environment and our instructors have a genuine desire to share their knowledge with you. Classes are offered on weekday evenings at Truman High School in Independence.


The success of a community education program relies on the active involvement of our citizens - not only those who enroll in our classes, but also those who participate on our citizen advisory board, volunteer at schools and events, or share their passion and knowledge with others by teaching a class. If you are interested in becoming involved in our program, please contact us at (816) 521-5507.
