State Posts Regional Funding Chart Under Reporting Toolkit
In order to maximize the benefits derived from public funds provided for the purpose of addressing the educational needs of adults and to ensure the efficient and coordinated use of resources, it is the intent and expectation of the Legislature that any community college district, school district, or county office of education, or any joint powers authority consisting of community college districts, school districts, county offices of education, or a combination of these, located within the boundaries of the adult education region shall be a member of a consortium pursuant to this article if it receives funds from any of the following programs or allocations: 

(a) The Adults in Correctional Facilities program. 
(b) The federal Adult Education and Family Literacy Act (Title II of the federal Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act). 
(c) The federal Carl D. Perkins Career and Technical Education Act (Public Law 109- 270). 
(d) Local Control Funding Formula apportionments received for students who are 19 years of age or older. 
(e) Community college apportionments received for providing instruction in courses in the areas listed in subdivision (a) of Section 84913. 
(f) State funds for remedial education and job training services for participants in the CalWORKs program. 

Consortium members will need to share information on related programs that they offer and the resources being used to support these programs. This requirement is an integral part of the state's effort to leverage resources and maximize outcomes in adult education and workforce services. 

Please see the link below to charts by regional consortia. These charts include member allocations for each fund source listed above. Also included are MOE allocations by member, the Regional Consortia allocations, and some additional related supportive service funding.

Regional AEBGrant Workshops Offer Training on AEBG Implementation
Learn more about the implementation of the Adult Education Block Grant. The AEBG budget bill (AB 104) outlines specific requirements that consortia must follow. The AEBG office will host a series of workshops around the state to provide information and to answer questions about what consortia must do to meet the requirements of the Adult Education Block Grant legislation. This is a joint effort of the CDE and Chancellor's Office through the AE Block Grant Office.

These workshops are in addition to the AEBG Adult Education Regional Planning Summit in Sacramento. Technical assistance workshops at the Summit will provide this information to attendees.

These workshops are recommended for consortia leads and other individuals who will be working on 2015-16 implementation templates, amended three-year plans, and grant budgets and expenditures.

To register, please click on the link below for the workshop you wish to attend:
Registration is limited to 35 participants at each location. Please limit attendees to key people from your consortium. Plenty of spots remain for the workshops. Two successful workshops have already been held at Baldwin Park and Fresno Adult School.

AEBG Adult Education Regional Planning Summit Held in Sacramento
Representatives from adult education consortia across the state met in Sacramento on September 24-25 for the AEBG Adult Education Regional Planning Summit.

Plenary speakers inspired attendees with the big picture of the role of adult education in California, leading the way for the country. In addition to plenary speakers, the Summit offered technical assistance workshops, programs from the field and networking opportunities. 

Information from the Summit will be shared on the new AEBG Website.

Share Your Practices with Promise
The AEBG Practices with Promise site is a tool developed to share promising practices in adult education across the State. This tool allows regional consortia to share promising practices currently in use that have been proven to work. These practices include current initiatives, pilot programs, or strategies employed in your region for any or all of the 5 program areas as well as practices that have helped your planning process be a success.
The Pasadena Area Consortium faced several challenges in helping adult learners make successful transitions from adult school to additional certifications or to the workforce. To meet these needs, staff and faculty are meeting to create an articulated curriculum. In addition, they have formalized collaboration with community partners. Learn how Pasadena Area Consortium is increasing interest and collaboration in creating formal best practices for seamless transistions by clicking the link below.
