The North St. Paul-Maplewood-Oakdale School District is launching new programs this fall so that students with young children and former students have a better chance to earn their high school diploma.
A daycare center for young children whose mothers are students will open in September at the District Education Center in North St. Paul. It is a partnership with the YMCA and designed to prevent young parents from dropping out. It will offer parenting classes as well, said community education director Chuck Erickson.
The district will also begin offering another new program at Harmony Learning Center this fall so adults between the ages of 18 to 21 who didn’t complete high school will have an added opportunity to earn their diploma.
