Adult Education Block Grant (AEBG)

As a result of strong advocacy on behalf of adult programs and students around the state, dedicated funding has returned for adult education in the form of the Adult Education Block Grant.  In 2013, a major change was made to how public adult schools do business including a greater emphasis on workforce development and providing seamless transitions for students going from a K-12 adult school into the community college system.   One major part of this shift was the formation of local consortia that includes representatives from the community college along with representatives from K-12 adult schools.  Davis Adult and Community Education is a member of the Capital Adult Education Regional Consortium (CAERC) in the Los Rios Community College District.  CAERC is the second largest consortium in the state with 13 K-12 school districts and 4 community colleges. 

For more information about the work of the local consortium, including public meeting agendas and our three year plan to enhance adult education services in our region, visit the CAERC website.  For more information about AB104 and the Adult Education Block Grant statewide, visit the AEBG website.

Fall Quarter Is Here!

Welcome Back!   Fall Quarter is officially underway and registration remains open throughout the quarter.  This year, we have expanded our Cooking and Health class selections by including several Japanese Cooking workshops, a new Eating for Health and Vitality class, and with the return of the Ethnic Vegetarian Cooking class.  In addition, we have several classes for people looking to enhance their workplace skills including The Magic of Networking, classes in MS Office applications, and Digital Photography.  As always, we also want to help people expand their cultural toolkit by offering a full array of language classes from every corner of the globe and several art classes.  For those looking to start a new career, we also offer a Pharmacy Technician certificate program which helps participants qualify for a license from the State Board of Pharmacy.  We look forward to seeing all of our old friends and making many new ones this year! 

WASC Accreditation - Update

Davis Adult and Community Education has been awarded "Advancement to Candidacy" by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges.  This is an important first step in receiving full accreditation.  Over the course of the next 2 years, we will be refining and implementing our Action Plan, gathering input from Stakeholders, and reviewing Data to identify areas of strength and areas for growth.  We hope that you will join us on this exciting journey!  

 

What is WASC Accreditation?

Accreditation is a voluntary dual-purpose process that schools (1) must be worthy of the trust placed in them to provide high-quality learning and (2) clearly demonstrate continual self-improvement.

An accredited school is focused on a mission and goals for students; it is student-oriented and examines its students’ performance continuously; it accepts objective evaluation from a team of outside peer professionals trained by ACS WASC; it maintains a qualified faculty within an effectively organized school; it collaboratively assesses the quality of its educational programs on a regular basis; and it plans for the future.

 

How can our community participate in our planning and review process?

A key component of the WASC review process is stakeholder input.  Stakeholders include school leadership, instructors, students, and community members.  Stakeholders can provide input by responding to surveys (i.e. class evaluations), attending community meetings, and by participating directly in planning focus groups.  The WASC review process focuses on a continuous cycle of improvement and is therefore ongoing and continuous.  If you are interested in participating now or in the future in our school planning process, please contact our office to be added to future communications about ways that you can participate.

 

You can review our current WASC Report and Action Plan here.

New Classes are added all of the time!

We are always looking for new and innovative classes to enhance our program, so if you have a skill that you think people would be interested in learning and want to teach others, please contact us through email at das@djusd.net or by filling out the Course Proposal form under "Employment".  We look forward to seeing you in one of our upcoming classes and Happy Learning!

Sincerely,
