Major earthquakes may happen anywhere you work, live or travel in California. The ShakeOut is our chance to practice how to protect ourselves, and be prepared. The goal is to prevent a major earthquake from becoming a catastrophe for you, our campus, or our surrounding community.
Why is a “drop, cover and hold on” drill important? As with anything, to act quickly you must practice. You may only have seconds to protect yourself in an earthquake before strong shaking knocks you down, or something falls on you. More than nine million participants are expected to participate in the Great ShakeOut this year. SCE staff, faculty, and students are expected to participate if they are on any of the three campuses during the drill. The goal is for everyone to practice the “drop, cover and hold on” exercise and then, when instructed, evacuate the campus buildings to the designated safe zones.
We look forward to a successful drill on Thursday, October 18; visit www.shakeout.org for further information. Featured on the website is a page, “Seven Steps to Earthquake Safety,” that includes checklists and resource sheets on securing household items, creating an earthquake kit, assessing your home for structural integrity, and developing a family emergency plan.
SCE offers job search resources for students in the form of workshops, online job
resources and one-to-one assistance. Offered via the Career Technical Education (CTE) project and supported by grant funds, SCE will host two additional workshops in October:
The Anaheim Campus (AN) is located at 1830 W. Romneya Drive in Anaheim. The Board Room is located on the first floor of the Anaheim Campus.

Parents are invited to register their kids and teens for classes at the North Orange County Community College District’s School of Continuing Education’s Kids’ College and Teen Program (KC&TP).

Students can take advantage of math and reading tutorials or start a new hobby like computer animation and game design, art, teen ballroom dancing, crochet, quick start junior tennis or guitar. Or maybe parents are interested in building their child’s self-confidence with classes like “be bigger than a bully,” public speaking, or a class on study skills, test preparation and organization.

Change. Cultivated. Possibilities.
Fall brings a new cycle of opportunity with the start of a new school year. In my experience, there is nothing more powerful than the feeling of setting a new goal, developing a plan to achieve it and then accomplishing that goal. At the School of Continuing Education (SCE), we are focused on making dreams become reality for every student. And although our District has been impacted by the economic challenges that our state continues to face, we are truly committed to assisting each student in identifying goals, developing a plan and providing the support needed to achieve success.
Each year, we provide opportunities for thousands of students to reach their goals. This past year students completed career technical education certificates that led to new employment possibilities while other students completed high school diplomas and transitioned to higher education. Many other students enjoyed learning new skills for workplace transition or generating healthy and independent lifestyles.
As the new Provost, I want to personally invite you to take advantage of the many opportunities we have available for adults and children of all ages. A world of possibilities awaits you at SCE. Whatever your goal, we look forward to helping you achieve success. Let’s have a great fall term.
