The Evergreen School District Board of Directors established the Evergreen Community Education program in 1975 to facilitate the people's lives. It has become one of the most successful programs of its kind in Washington. We serve more than 13,400 participants of all ages annually in programs ranging from academics to recreation. Funding for the administration and support of our programs and activities comes primarily from user fees. Most programs are in a "pay to participate" format.
Our MISSION is to facilitate the natural link between school and community and to enrich people's lives through courses and programs that allow participants to Live, Learn and Explore!
