Please contact your legislator today to let them know how critical this funding is to our work.  You can send them an email, make a call, sign our petition, and forward this on to your colleagues, adult learners, family, and friends. Now is our time to come together on behalf of our field!

On February 9, President Trump signed a Continuing Resolution that includes significant increases in Non-defense Discretionary spending and offers the opportunity to increase funding for Adult Education, among other programs. Now, each Appropriations Committee must decide how to allocate its new funds.

SENATOR JACK REED (Rhode Island) is proposing to increase funding for Adult Education by $100 million (a roughly 17 percent increase) from about $582 million to about $682 million.

DATES: TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 20, 2018, TO MONDAY, MARCH 19, 2018
PRESENTED BY: S. CASPERITE

Goals: The goal of this course is to provide an overview of current research on factors that contribute to learner persistence in adult literacy programs and to help participants identify program changes that can be made to enhance learner persistence.

Description: This course takes place entirely online and runs for four consecutive weeks, from 02/20/2018 to 03/19/2018. Weekly participation is required, though participants may, during a given week, log in whenever they wish. A kick-off Webinar will take place on February 22, 2018 at 3:00 p.m.

What's all the excitement surrounding the topic of learner persistence, how does it differ from student retention and motivation, and how do I encourage my students to persist in their learning? Based on research on factors that promote learner persistence, this workshop engages participants in brainstorming implications for changing practice in the four areas of intake, orientation, instruction, and program activities. Come see what all the excitement is about!

Participants who successfully complete this course will receive a certificate of participation (14 hours); they are also eligible to apply to California State University Sacramento for 1.4 continuing education units (CEUs) if they wish.

CCAE is compiling a directory of Adult Ed providers which will include primary contacts, program areas they deliver instruction in, and total number of students served. The goal is to strengthen local sharing of best practices by creating a directory of programs that is easy to use.

As you might remember, we had this before flexibility, and it was quite popular and useful. Complete the Adult Education Data form for your Adult Ed school to ensure it is included in the directory.  

If you need assistance, please contact membership@ccaestate.org to schedule an appointment with our dedicated staff who can help you or one of your lead staff complete the form in under 5 minutes. We appreciate your help with this important work!

Sincerely,
