Article4New Submission Requirements for Quarterly and Annual AEBG Performance Reports
The AEBG Office has issued a letter detailing requirements for Quarterly and Annual AEBG Performance Reports.  This letter includes details and required actions relating to:
  • Management Information System Requirements;
  • Alignment of AEBG Measures; and
  • AEBG Performance Data and Accountability Funding
Consortia receiving AEBG funding from the CDE and the CCCCO for the 2016-17 program year must have a performance data collection system (MIS/Student Information Management System) by December 30, 2016 that can report all data into the CASAS TOPSPro® Enterprise system.  Consortia must track only students funded by AEBG for instructions and services. Consortia must use the National Reporting System (NRS) approved instruments for measureable skill gains in AEBG funded instruction (12 hours or more) in ABE, ASE & ESL.*

*NOTE: Any non-WIOA members would have to purchase TOPSPro® Enterprise in order to report their AEBG student data.  See AEBG student data collection page for link to CASAS pricing list (see link below).  WIOA members already have TOPSPro and would not need to purchase it again. More info on the 12/2 webinar.

CLICK HERE or see the link below for the AEBG Office letter which details required actions. This letter was sent out to regional consortia primary contacts last week. CLICK HERE to connect to the Student Data Collection page for more important information and links.

Article4Public Policy Institute of California Report on Student Success in Community College
The Public Policy Institute of California released a report called Preparing Students for Success in California's Community Colleges. This report presents a statistical portrait of developmental education, describing the enrollment patterns and characteristics of developmental education students, their journey through developmental coursework, and their academic outcomes. 

Article4Migration Policy Institute Fact Sheets 
The Migration Policy Institute created fact sheets for the United States and the 20 states and 25 counties (plus New York City) with the largest immigrant populations provide key characteristics of foreign-born and native-born residents that are relevant to understanding needs for adult education and workforce training services. Drawing upon MPI analysis of U.S. Census Bureau data, the fact sheets provide estimates of the ages, origins, educational attainment, English proficiency, unemployment and underemployment, parental status, poverty, health insurance coverage, and immigration status of U.S. and state populations. Click on the state or county links below to access individual fact sheets.

For an overview of these statistics in California, take a look at the presentation by Manuel Pastor, of the USC Program for Environmental and Regional Equity, from the 2016 AEBG Annual Summit where he presented on the changing demographics of California.  CLICK HERE for his presentation from the summit. 

Article4Tipping Point Community Video on Poverty
The link below is to a video from the Tipping Point Community that provides a good demonstration of costs when an individual lives below the poverty line. The Tipping Point Community is a non-profit that provides grant funding and conducts research in order to fight poverty in the Bay Area.  While their work is specific to the Bay Area, the models fund and research they conduct may be useful for regional consortia.
