Adult Education Program Receives Community Fund Grant
The Plainville Community Fund II at the Main Street Community Foundation recently awarded a $2,618 grant to Plainville Adult and Continuing Education. The funding will provide 14 (needs-based) scholarships for Plainville residents to partake in a ServSafe Manager Food Protection Certification Course, this fall. Students will receive a text book, study materials, and the ServSafe Exam on-site.
This hands-on course will be instructed at Plainville High School, by Jim Bondi, a registered ServSafe Instructor and Food Services Director for Plainville Community Schools with over 36 years of experience in the Food Services sector. In addition to acquiring essential food safety skills, students will be invited to attend a culminating Interview Etiquette Workshop.
Jill O'Brien, Plainville Adult and Continuing Education Coordinator said, "We appreciate the generous funding from the Plainville Community Fund supporting this career path opportunity. Once students complete the program, they will be prepared to secure employment with a state recognized certification."
"I am very proud of Jill O'Brien and our Adult Education Department for securing grant funds that support all of our students," said Superintendent of Schools, Dr. Maureen Brummett.
The ServSafe Manager Food Protection course will be featured in the fall 2016 Plainville Adult and Continuing Education Program Guide, mailed to all Plainville residents in mid-August, and is posted on the school district’s website at: http://www.plainvilleschools.org/family/adulted
