Community Education

Welcome the Canajoharie Community Education Program

 

Community Education LogoThe Canajoharie Central School District is currently piloting community education courses for district residents. Last year, the district distributed a community survey to gauge interest in a community education program.

 

Survey respondents indicated a high level of interest in technology classes and cooking/health-related programs. See below for a list of courses currently being offered. A new slate of courses is expected to be offered during the second half of the school year.

“Take Me Home” Program introduction, sign-ups

 

Designed to train the public to help adults and children who may have difficulty communicating due to a developmental or cognitive disability that may need special assistance if they are alone or in times of emergency.

 

This kind of assistance may be required if the person is unable to speak or properly identify themselves, or if they become disoriented or act in a manner that could be misinterpreted by first responders. Also this same database can be used for the elderly with Alzheimer’s or other age related issues. There is no charge, no enrollment fee, and information is kept confidential.

 

Take Me Home program database includes a current digital picture, demographic information, caregiver contacts and any addition important information for the person in need. Police can access the database in their patrol car. If a person cannot their name a physical description can help identify the person. This database would be shared with the Montgomery County Dispatch. Responding will be advised that there may be a person with special needs on scene.
