• If you are interested in teaching a course through Lancaster’s Community Education program, please complete and submit the Course Applications (link below). The document must be saved to your computer in order to fill in the information. Please provide a description of the course and the date/dates you would like to offer it. You will need to complete a separate course application for each course that you teach. If you need a gym or pool, please submit your request as soon as possible because space is limited.  All courses are subject to director approval.  Instructors will be notified.

  • Attention New Instructors:


    There are three options for instructor payment:

    1. You can invoice us for the amount you need to collect per student.
    2. You can be paid a flat hourly rate through the district.
    3. You can offer your class for no pay.

    New instructors please email Yvette Koeth at ykoeth@lancasterschools.org with your course application (link above) and we will send the necessary paperwork to you.
