Sacramento Public Library (SPL)
recently issued high school diplomas to ten graduates of the
Career Online High School (COHS)
program. The program highlights SPL's commitment to providing learning opportunities for workforce development and supporting citizens at all ages and levels of need. Graduates of the program ranged from a hardworking father of two to a young woman who is the first in her family to come to the United States.
As part of the online education program, students earned their high school diploma as well as a certificate in one of the program's eight career areas, including Office Management and Child Care and Education. Students worked with assigned academic coaches and participated in a series of online courses and professional development webinars to earn their diploma and develop important employment documents, such as resumes and cover letters.
