Message from the CCAE State President
By now most of our schools are well into the 2017-18 school year. It always amazes me how different our start dates are. I know some programs start their year in early August, while others in mid-September. We adapt to the needs of the community, and that is what makes our schools so vital to the Adult Education system in California. As we move through this school year, I want to make sure that CCAE is working right beside you to support the students we serve. Many of our sections will be hosting a fall professional development conference and will provide the most current information on AEBG and WIOA, share best practices, recognize great teachers and support staff, and provide fun opportunities to make new Adult Ed friends and catch up with old ones. Moving into spring, we anxiously await our State Conference being held in Fresno and hosted by Central Section, who know how to throw a fun conference. Based on what I've heard so far, I think this is going to be one to remember!
I also want to share with you that, at the CCAE State Board level, we are busy working on an advocacy campaign that is at a level that I have not seen in my 17 years of experience in CCAE. We believe this is the right time to elevate the importance of Adult Education in California, and we have identified a number of strategies that we will use to do so. That is all I will say for now, other than we will need your help. As always, it is our local CCAE members and their engagement locally with legislators and other key decision makers that make our success possible. We recognize that this local engagement can be difficult, but we will not leave you without resources. We will help you be successful locally so that we can be successful in Sacramento. Again, more to come...
I want to wish you a great school year and remind you that CCAE is always here to help. Do not hesitate to contact us if you are having difficulty in serving the community, for whatever reason.
Steve Curiel, President
California Council for Adult Education
