History of Twin Rivers Adult School
Twin Rivers Adult School started as Grant Adult Education in 1937 by providing night classes for Grant High School. It later moved to the WWII baracks known as "Splinter City" on the now-closed McClellan AFB. In the 1970s English as a Second Language became part of Grant Adult Education with the passage of the Montoya Bill. In 1976 the Program for older adults was founded, and in 1980 the Adults with Disabilities program started in partnership with United Cerebal Palsy. In 1983 the Allied Health program begins fully accredited by the California Board of Vocational Nursing and Psychiatric Technicians.
In 2007, to recognize Grant Adult Education's 70th anniversary, and the difference it has made in the community, the City of Sacramento designated March 12, 2007 as Grant Adult Education Day, and the County of Sacramento designated March 16, 2007 Grant Adult Education Day. Further, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Governor of California, commended Grant Adult Education's teachers and staff for their hard work and dedication.
With the merger of the Grant Joint Union High School District with several other districts, the new district is named "Twin Rivers Unified School District" and Grant Adult Education has been renamed to "Twin Rivers Adult School"
