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 8th!

Spring is a great time for both physical and mental renewal, which also makes it a great time to learn a new skill or hobby!  Spring Quarter registration is now open and we have many exciting and informative classes to meet a variety of learning needs.  New to the line-up in Spring is a Meditation class and an Asian Cuisine cooking class.  If you are in the mood for some personal and professional growth, consider The Magic of Networking or one of our health and fitness classes.  The very popular Italian Cooking series is also back, this time with two different 5-week sessions to accommodate more people and provide a greater variety of recipes.  We look forward to seeing you in Spring.

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!
