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.


Winter Quarter Starts January 9th

As the weather gets colder, cozy up to some nice warm learning this Winter!  We have several new classes in our Winter line-up including Italian Cooking, a Resume Workshop, Watercolor Painting, Winter Baking, and several Japanese Cooking Workshops.  For our Teen students, we are continuing the very popular SAT Preparation series and we've added a Money 101 class for our soon-to-be grads and beyond.  We will also be offering a wide array of language classes, fitness classes, and computer classes along with some community favorites like Community Folk Orchestra and Woodworking.  Registration for Winter Quarter is open now and many of our most popular classes will reach capacity before the quarter starts, so register today!


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!
