Prior Learning Assessment Project
Prior learning assessment remains a focus at the system-level. The Foundation for California Community Colleges coordinated a Credit for Prior Learning Advisory Committee of community college stakeholders and met in 2018 and the start of 2019. The goal of this committee was to make recommendations to Title 5 policy to expand prior learning assessment beyond credit by exam.

At the Board of Governors of the California Community Colleges meeting on May 20-21, the proposed changes to Title 5 section 55050 were presented. These efforts represent another step toward serving students through prior learning assessment methods such as portfolio assessment.

Review the meeting agenda and the proposed regulation notices by following the links below.

Regional News
The Business and Entrepreneurship Deputy Sector Navigator collaborated with six of the Region’s Colleges to send 228 business and CTE students to attend the Global Startup Grind powered by Google Conference in February 2019. The students had the opportunity to hear startup lessons from successful founders including Airbnb, Y Combinator and Blue Bottle Coffee. The students also spent time discussing with business owners, internship opportunities and challenges and feedback of startup in the Startup Tents.
Here’s a few comments from students:
I got to meet the CEO and Communications director for IndieGogo!! I got great advice about how to prepare my business before launching on a crowd funding platform. Have your product the way you want it and have professional photos and videos ready.
The Presenters had some great insight and the start up tent allowed for face to face networking.
I enjoyed the opportunity to learn and be able to attend an empowering event.
