English as a Second Language

With the Governor declaring a State of Emergency and closing schools for three weeks, we at Chippewa Valley are continuing to take measures to protect and maintain the safety and health of our community.  All Community Education Activities, including GED/ESL classes, will be canceled  until April 13, 2020. You will still have access to your online learning, so please keep working during these next few weeks. Please check back for further updates.
