Welcome to Dexter Community Education. 
Our goal is to provide
quality enrichment, recreation, preschool,
and before and after school care programs
to enhance our Dexter Community. 
 This website will allow you to:
  • view available Community Education classes and programs
  • register online for Enrichment and Recreation classes (including make payment, if desired)
  • learn more about our early childhood programs, school-year preschool, and GSRP programs
  • learn about our before- and after- school Care and no-school day special programs
  • review facility availability and download forms to request facility space for rental 
Class Registrations
Please register for classes as soon as you know you want to participate. Many of our courses require a minimum number of registrants in order to run. The registration deadline for all courses is one week prior to the course start date, unless otherwise specified--some programs require more notice to order equipment, etc. If there are not enough participants registered by the deadline, we will cancel the class. If we are close to enrollment goals, we will send out a message and/or post the news to Facebook to see if we can fill the requirement. Here is the form to register for classes via fax, email, or walk-in: Course Registration Form
Class and Program T-Shirts
The registration deadline for a class is the last day when we can guarantee participants t-shirts (in the programs that include t-shirts--not all do). We may elect to accept late registrations when it's feasible, but we cannot promise your student will receive a t-shirt in those cases. We order shirts according to total registrations by the deadline. Thank you for your understanding. 
Inclement Weather
If Dexter Schools are closed for the day or dismissed early for inclement weather, all after school Community Education classes are automatically cancelled for that day.  If a late storm prevents announcement of cancellations, use your own judgment  regarding attendance.  Every effort will be made to make up time lost due to cancellation.  Call 734-424-4100 extension 8 for Dexter school closing announcements.

Notification Policy
PLEASE NOTE: We do not call or mail confirmations of registration, so come to your class at the scheduled time unless otherwise notified.  Please register early; we may cancel classes that appear to have low enrollment prior to the start date. 

LAST-MINUTE CHANGES: When weather or building issues affect our programs, we usually notify people first through email. This is simply the most efficient method when we are dealing with a large number of affected customers. Please ensure that your account includes your most current email so that we can share important information with you. 

A full refund will be issued if a class is cancelled for lack of enrollment. There is a $5.00 per class processing fee for refund requests not due to class cancellation. Refunds for dropping a class must be requested at least one week before the class begins. A partial refund for dropping a swim class is permitted if requested before the second class meeting. There is no refund, credit or reduction of fees for any class missed by a student, including late registration. A class cancelled by Community Education because of weather, instructor illness, etc. will be rescheduled if possible. If a swim class cannot be made up, a swim pass will be issued as compensation.
