(Woodland, CA) – The Yolo County Library is offering community members an opportunity to earn an accredited high school diploma and credentialed career certificate through Career Online High School (COHS), a program brought to public libraries by Gale, a for profit company a part of Cengage Learning.
COHS is a pilot project, recently signed by Governor Brown, with a $1 million budget aimed at helping Californians earn a high school diploma online. The California State Library is assisting with the program’s implementation and working to create partnerships and funding opportunities at the local and state levels. The Yolo County Office of Education has agreed to generously give $10,000 of the $17,000 in matching funds required by the State Library. The Yolo County Library is continuing to work with the Yolo County Office of Education and Yolo County school districts to raise the remaining funds.
