Article4AEBG Office Launches Field Teams
In addition to the Data and Accountability Committee announced last week, the AEBG Office has established two additional field teams: the CTE Assessment Committee and the ABE/ASE/ESL Committee. As announced last week, the Data and Accountability committee will develop recommendations regarding metric definitions, data tracking, assessment, and accountability reporting for AEBG.

The CTE Assessment and the ABE/ASE/ESL committees will examine issues pertaining to how each program area should be assessed for AEBG. The committees' recommendations will be presented in a summary paper. The recommendations also will be included in comprehensive documentation of data and accountability requirements for AEBG grantees, and it will be used to develop the assessment and accountability report due to the legislature Aug. 1.

The committees will meet between May and July. Meeting invitations will be sent to the representatives of K-12 adult schools, community college credit programs and community college noncredit programs who have been selected to join the committee. These members will be joined by representatives from the California Department of Education and from the Chancellor's Office. For more information and future updates, visit  aebg.cccco.edu. 

Article4Telling Our Story
As part of our efforts to better communicate our successes to legislators and the community at large, the AEBG annual report is being designed in an eMagazine format. This interactive online magazine is highly visual, with infographics, embedded videos and narrative to bring our story to life. It's the first step in an ongoing strategy currently being developed to create communication tools to share with legislators and your partners. The eMagazine is in production now.
