2017 AEBG Progress Report

The AEBG Progress Report, a new eMagazine developed by the AEBG Office, was released recently. The eMagazine tells the story of why adult education is important to California's economy and provides an overview of AEBG activities, data and innovations. Additionally, the eMagazine features a promising practice for each program area. Share this eMagazine with your colleagues in adult education, as well as your partners outside of adult education and other community stakeholders, so they can learn more about AEBG and its impact.

AEBG Field Teams

As AEBG moves into its third year of implementation it is imperative that both California Department of Education Adult Ed Office and the California Community College Chancellor’s Office hear from the K-12 based Adult Education programs who deliver the bulk of non-credit Adult Education in California. CCAE has been and continues to be the strongest voice for Adult Education in California. With more than 70 years of engagement with State policy makers and CDE, CCAE is known to have the history and technical and political understanding of California Adult Education.

These past few months the AEBG Office has been working with a select group of Adult Education leaders on policy recommendations around Data and Accountability, Assessment alignment, and Career Technical Education. It is no surprise that CCAE members are at the table in these groups along with Community College leaders and ensuring that recommendations are positive (not harmful) for our K-12 Adult Education programs and the students they serve. You can click on the link HERE to find out who is participating in these AEBG Field Teams. Participation in these Field Teams means CCAE will continue to deliver the latest guidance on AEBG to its members, such as in these Regional Meetings


Revised Regional Fact Sheets Released as Part of Annual Plan Toolkit

A revised version of the regional fact sheets that are a part of the AEBG Annual Plan Toolkit have been posted to the AEBG website. Fact sheets have been created for each consortium. The fact sheets will help regions identify gaps, as well as review progress since the 2012-13 program year, as they complete their 2017-18 annual plan. The sheets provide a demographic summary, information about the availability of funding from various sources within the region and a gaps analysis for four program areas for which data are available: elementary and secondary basic skills, English as a second language, programs for adults with disabilities and career technical education. 

The fact sheets are a first step in helping consortia evaluate need and effectiveness in their region. These fact sheets are high level and will not be used by the state as targets or performance goals. Regional consortia should delve into the numbers by asking questions such as: 
Do these figures truly reflect the number of people who need or want adult education services (as identified by the census)?
Are the funding amounts listed an accurate reflection of the amounts that truly are available to your members?
Do your 2015-2016 student data numbers reflect a realistic enrollment trend? 
Studying the data with these questions in mind will assist your region in preparing your annual plan and developing your long term vision.

 

Special Announcement

Center for Law and Social Policy Report on AEBG Implementation Released

The Center for Law and Social Policy (CLASP), a national, nonpartisan, anti-poverty organization, released Prosperity Through Partnership: Opportunities for AEBG to Strengthen Systems and Communities. The report was supported by funding from the State AEBG Office and included contributions by the California Community College Chancellor's Office (CCCCO), California Department of Education (CDE), CASAS, WestEd, IMPAQ, and OTAN as well as field input from the AEBG regional consortia via survey completion. 

In January 2016, the CLASP commenced an 18-month project to study the implementation of California's Adult Education Block Grant (AEBG) initiative. CLASP set out to foster greater understanding of the implementation of California's AEBG governance and direct service activities, analyze current and potential impacts of the AEBG initiative for partners and participants, and offer recommendations for potential policy and implementation changes in future rounds of AEBG funding and other coordinated funding streams, for consideration by the CCCCO, the CDE, and other policymakers.

The study employed several research methods including surveys, focus groups, and semi-structured interviews as well as ongoing communication with AEBG leaders and practitioners.  

As a result of this study, CLASP details 19 recommendations in the following categories:

  • Clarify AEBG's mission and vision so that leaders, practitioners, and community members can clearly identify and articulate the major differences between the legacy, pre-2014 adult education system and the AEBG structure envisioned by California law. 
  • Use AEBG to drive a comprehensive pathways system by re-imagining adult education as a strategic partner in strengthening individual economic mobility and regional economic competitiveness through community-wide skill development.
  • Tie AEBG accountability to impact through the establishment of a cross-system accountability structure. This requires a number of barriers to be addressed:delineate and distinguish "populations from services" in fund reporting; clarify fund reporting on AEBG's five objectives; align data definitions and processes among AEBG, WIOA title II, and community college providers; maximize the use of WIOA-measurable skill gain in AEBG; clarify transition to postsecondary education across reporting for AEBG, WIOA title II and LaunchBoard and, measure progress on mandated objectives in AEBG regional plans. 
  • Provide comprehensive technical assistance and professional development. The AEBG professional development technical assistance provider can greatly enhance capacity for comprehensive capacity building.
