WIOA Opportunities – November 5, 3:00 p.m.
Presented by Erin Roth
What’s really changed from WIA to WIOA? Where are the opportunities to improve services to adult learners? How would co-enrollment between WIOA I (adult, youth, dislocated worker) and WIOA II (adult education) be promoted and work?
Basic Adult Education Structure and Activities – November 19, 3:00 p.m.
Presented by Amanda Bergson-Shilcock
What do adult education programs and services look like across the country?  How are geography, economies, and focus populations reflected in service strategies? What are some new models emerging?
Integrated Education & Training/Career Pathways – December 3, 3:00 p.m.
Presented by Will Durden
WIOA, the Higher Education Act, and the new Perkins V legislation all share the same ‘career pathway’ definition. What does that look like in operation? How can it help you scale and sustain your IET and career pathway programming?
Reporting Adult Education Data – December 10, 3:00 p.m.
Presented by Jennifer Schlukebier
What is the National Reporting System and how it used? What new elements has WIOA introduced into reporting? How do targeted performance negotiations impact your work?
Leveraging WIOA II Funds with other Resources – December 17, 3:00 p.m.
Presented by Lecester Johnson
WIOA II federal funds are just one source of adult education funding. To build comprehensive service models, state and local programs are braiding other federal, state, and local public and private funds. Come here about this strategy from an adult charter school leader. 
Take a few minutes to let us know of additional questions you may have so these presentations will focus on your needs.
