FAQs

Why can't I see the class I want to take? 
Not all classes may be available at this time, and many of this term's classes may have already started. Check back every term for a new slate!

What does ID/OD mean?
 People who live or own property within Willamalane Park and Recreation District’s boundaries support Willamalane with their tax dollars, and so they enjoy lower program costs. If you live in-district, you'll pay the ID cost; if you live out-of-district, you'll pay the OD cost. Not sure if you're in-district? Check the district map here.
