The school board of Wayzata Public Schools recently approved an agreement with Interfaith Outreach and Community Partners (IOCP) to lease a portion of IOCP’s new facility near County Road 101 and County Road 6 in Plymouth. Several Hennepin County programs will also be housed in the facility.
The district’s community education department will occupy a portion of the building and will offer early childhood programs, adult basic education, adult English as a second language, classes for active older adults and seniors, academic support for K-12 students, and high school service learning opportunities at the site. The department will continue to offer programming at its current locations in the district.
“The opportunity to share space in IOCP’s new facility is exciting for our district’s community education program,” said Bob Wittman, director of community education. “We will be able to expand our programming to reach more people in the community and do it as part of a powerful partnership.”
The district programs in the IOCP facility will be available beginning fall 2011.
