Performance Measures Questions and Guidance
Many questions have been raised through the AEBG Inbox and Technical Assistance Webinars regarding more clarity on how we are tracking students and developing targets. As you know, this is Year 1 of the grant's implementation phase of our 3-year Adult Education Block Grant Planning effort.  

We are combining two systems, bringing on board many non-WIOA districts/schools, and tracking students in program areas that have not been tracked for years. Please bear with us, work with us, and let's together continue to develop the know-how & tools that will allow us to move forward. 

Although we won't be providing too much clarity on this year's data collection and outcomes other than what is in the templates & guidance, we will be walking you through the data submission process. Look for more information by the beginning of the year on this topic to help us through the mid-year reporting period of student enrollment and outcomes.

With that said, we appreciate all the hard work and effort that went into the plans, templates, forms, and workbooks that arrived over the weekend and on Monday. We are all in this together!

Share Your Practices with Promise: A Strong Partnership Between a Community College & Adult School
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 program areas as well as practices that have helped your planning process be a success.
Adult school students often don't see themselves as college students. Their experiences don't match what they think college students are. To meet these challenges, College of Marin staff provided outreach activties to students at Tam Adult School. Read how students at Tam Adult School are successfully transitioning through college placement tests, applications and enrollment by clicking the link below. 

We want to hear your stories and we want you to share your promising practices with your colleagues in adult education. Visit AEBGpracticeswithpromise.com to submit your story today!
