Article4CLASP Survey on AEBG Implementation
As you know, the Center for Law and Social Policy (CLASP) is studying the implementation of California's AEBG. Last year, CLASP fielded a survey on AEBG implementation and had over 300 responses. Now, CLASP is following up with just the lead contacts from each AEBG consortia. 

Links to the survey have been sent to the primary contacts for each of the consortia. CLASP's goal is to have a single survey response from each of the 71 consortia. Please follow up with your consortium's primary contact (click here for the directory to see who is listed as yours) to remind them to take 15 minutes to provide updated responses on AEBG implementation since last spring. If your primary contact has not received the link, please ask them to contact the AEBG office at aebg@cccco.edu
CLASP would like these surveys completed by February 27. 
Thank you in advance for your contribution to this important study!

Article4AEBG Office Transition
The AEBG Office is sad to announce that Debra Jones will be leaving our ranks.  Debra has worked in state leadership at the CDE and CCCCO for nine years. Our loss is Peralta Community College District's gain as she transitions into her new role. Debra has been a leader of the AEBG initiative and will be missed. We wish Debra the best of luck in her new endeavors!
