Santa Clara County Supervisor Joe Simitian is hosting a virtual town hall Feb. 25 for Cupertino residents to get information about COVID-19 vaccinations: when residents are eligible, where to get them and how to sign up.
Simitian will be joined by Cupertino Mayor Darcy Paul, representatives from the Santa Clara County Public Health Department and Office of County Counsel, and representatives from healthcare providers including El Camino Health, Stanford Health Care and Sutter Health/Palo Alto Medical Foundation.
The one-hour virtual town hall begins at 6:30 p.m. To register, visit https://tinyurl.com/simitiancommevents.
Online diplomas for adults
The Santa Clara County Library District is partnering with the California State Library and Gale, a Michigan-based educational publishing company, to offer Career High School Online, where adults can earn their accredited high school diploma and career certificate.
The program pairs each student with an academic coach. Classes are supported by board-certified instructors, and students have 24/7 access to the online learning platform.
Students have 18 months to complete the program. In addition to a high school diploma, those who finish will also receive a credentialed career certificate in one of eight fields.
Applicants must reside in the county library district, be at least 19 years old and have a library account in good standing. All classes are taught in English, with participants needing to read at a seventh-grade level or above. The district has a limited number of scholarships available.
