San Bernardino Valley College Hosts Regional Adult Education Consortium

San Bernardino Valley College Hosts Regional Adult Education Consortium

SAN BERNARDINO, California (March 30, 2017) ?—? On March 7, the Inland Adult Education Consortium hosted the 2017 Adult Education Block Grant (AEBG) Regional Training Series at San Bernardino Valley College.

The California Community College Chancellor’s Office (CCCCO) and the California Department of Education (CDE) are tasked to work together to implement the requirements outlined in the AEBG, which provides funds to support public education for adults.

Through legislature AB104, the providers of adult education services are working collectively to assist adults striving to advance in their education, gain employment, and improve wages through a comprehensive California partnership at the state level through CDE and CCCCO and in the field through consortia and partners for an alignment of services, as outlined by the state AEBG Office.

Over 100 Southern California educators gathered in SBVC’s Business Conference Center for the AEBG training series on March 7.

SBVC’s AEBG Administrator, Emma Diaz, said the college was chosen to host the training because it is the largest consortium within San Bernardino County, and is centrally located in the heart of the Inland Empire. It was the first time SBVC was asked to host the entire region, and more than 100 people attended two sessions?—?in the morning, AEBG State Representative Neil Kelly covered policy guidance for the AEBG, including a timeline of deliverables, data collection guidelines, and an overview of funding for future years, and in the afternoon, attendees learned about technical submission of the data from Jay Wright, California accountability manager with CASAS.

“It was exciting to host the event for the state AEBG office,” Diaz said. “We had 14 regional consortia from throughout the Southland represented at the event.”
