 NOCRC Project Asparagus: I-BEST in Action
The North Orange County Regional Consortium for Adult Education is comprised of Anaheim Union High School District, Fullerton Joint Union High School District, North Orange Community College District, and Placentia-Yorba Linda Unified School District.

Often times ESL and/or Basic Skills students become frustrated with CTE programs because it would take so long for them to get through their ESL or Basic Skills program before they felt they were able to begin a CTE program or they attempted to struggle through the CTE program without the needed language or basic skills needed to be successful in the program, which often led to dropouts and/or failing the course.  The goal became to find a way to accelerate students' academic progress while ensuring they gain the requisite language and or other skills needed to successfully earn a CTE certificate and ultimately gain employment in their field of study.

The NOCRC began an I-BEST action research project in Spring 2015 that added an ESL instructor with a CTE Intro to Pharmacy Tech course.  That first cohort gave valuable information that informed how NOCRC would design future I-BEST courses. NORCRC went on to expand this program.  Read more about their solution and the outcome on aebgpracticeswithpromis.com!
