Advancing CA Adult Education Model Program

San Diego and Imperial Counties are home to six consortia that serve diverse rural, suburban, and urban areas and vary widely in representational framework (colleges, K-12 adult schools, etc.), institutional structures, and institutional funding models. In a geographic region that covers more than 8,743 square miles and has an adult population of more than 2,500,000 million, the impact of adult education programs and student success are directly related to a regional network of support and collaboration across consortia.

Master Plan for Career Education

The leaders of California’s education and workforce agencies–working with students, families, adult learners, workers, employers, labor, and community-based organizations–have developed a set of big ideas for creating more equitable access to living wage, fulfilling work. During 2024, Californians will have an opportunity to weigh in on how to translate those ideas into concrete actions.

This collaborative effort will result in a Master Plan for Career Education.
