Article4FY2016-17 Annual Plan Contingent Approval Letter
The AEBG Office has issued a letter providing Contingent Approval to all AEBG Regional Consortia FY2016-17 Annual Plans. The letter provides an official approval to begin spending AEBG 2016-17 program funds.  

Article4AEBG Reporting Summary
There have recently been questions regarding the reporting schedule for the AEBG 2016-17 funds, AEBG 2015-16 funds and the Data and Accountability funds.  To help your region keep track of the expenditure reporting requirements, we have added a new reporting summary table.  This table can be found via the Calendar of Due Dates dropdown under the AEBG Grantees Tab on our website. 

Article5Clarification on Funding Allocations
We have received several emails from regions confused about their funding allocations.  If you have a K-12 district or COE fiscal agent or are a direct funded K-12 or COE member, please CLICK HERE for the CDE apportionment link to view your allocation schedule. If you have a community college district fiscal agent or are a direct funded community college member, please CLICK HERE for the Chancellor's Office apportionment link (and select the Adult Ed tab) to view your allocation schedule. 

Remember, if you have a fiscal agent, the break down of funding by member will be listed on the CFAD signed by all members and submitted to the AEBG Office in May 2016, not on the allocation schedule.  The CFADs for each consortia can be viewed through the details page of the Consortia Directory ( CLICK HERE for the Consortia Directory)

Article5Economic Mobility Tool
In May of 2015, the New York Times released a report on economic mobility.  The report highlighted research completed by Raj Chetty and Nathaniel Hendren at Harvard University that demonstrates that the neighborhood  in which a child lives and grows up affects their opportunity for upward economic mobility. The report was accompanied by a tool that allows one to compare where they live or work with other areas across the country.  This tool may provide interesting insight for AEBG Adult Education consortia about their regions.
