WCC Moves Western Region Classes to Chelsea for Fall
Washtenaw Community College credit classes originally scheduled at Dexter High School for the Fall 2009 Semester will meet instead on the campus of Chelsea Community Services at 500 Washington St. in Chelsea. Construction at Dexter High School was a factor in the decision.
“The staff at Chelsea Community Services has been very welcoming,” said Diana Sepac, WCC Extension Services director. “Classes will be held in the 400 building, which Chelsea residents know as the library building of the old high school. It’s right off Washington Street and has plenty of convenient parking close to the entrance. We’re happy to be there this fall.”
This is the second change WCC has made this year in programs serving western Washtenaw County. In May, the College closed its office at 7920 Jackson Road after the coordinator transferred to a position on WCC’s main campus. The change initiated a review of ongoing service at that location and the needs of residents throughout the western region.
The move to Chelsea Community Services is for Fall Semester only while the College identifies and evaluates opportunities to better serve residents in the greater Chelsea, Dexter, and Manchester area. WCC hopes to finalize plans for all of its classes in the western region before the start of the Winter 2010 Semester in January.
Classes offered in Chelsea this fall include Fundamentals of Speaking, Composition I and II, Creative Writing I and II, Fundamentals of Algebra, Intermediate Algebra, Basic Statistics, Introduction to American Government, Introduction to Psychology, Child Psychology, Abnormal Psychology, and Beginning Conversational Spanish I.
