In case you missed it last week, AEBG state officials have agreed to provide AEBG regional consortia and their members more time to evaluate performance, review partner plans and look at member effectiveness as part of the update process of the AEBG three-year plan.
The state AEBG Office will issue guidance on this next round of strategic planning for adult education in the coming months. It is anticipated that the planning and evaluation process each regional consortium (and its members) will go through to update its plans will run deep into the 2018-19 program year, with an estimated due date of late spring 2019. For a preview of next year's deliverables, click here.
Some of the concepts that the AEBG Office will introduce in the guidance include evaluating what happened in the last three years; defining member effectiveness and how to measure it; reviewing regional planning efforts; improving the integration of services; establishing career pathways and industry sector strategies and so much more.
It is critical that once the outcome data is released in the adult education LaunchBoard that open and honest discussion about outcomes and effectiveness begin, including identifying your gaps and what technical assistance you may need to close those gaps to be more effective. Stay tuned for more updates at the beginning of 2018.
