  3. the enrichment of the personal lives of all who participate.


The post-high school and adult educational programs shall be administered by an appointed director in cooperation with the administration of the school district.


The physical facilities of the school district shall be made available for use in these programs when there is no conflict with the regular school activities and programs.


Recommendations for extension of the adult educational programs shall be made by the director to the school administration who in turn shall present them to the board.
