CARES Act Update
The California Department of Education maintains a website dedicated to the latest information regarding the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act. One of the eligible uses is for “Expenses to facilitate distance learning, including technological improvements, in connection with school closings to enable compliance with COVID-19 precautions”. As a result, K-12 districts now have a new avenue to provide the technological funding necessary to make remote learning for Adult Education students a possibility – if states and local officials are willing to allot funding for this purpose. Stay tuned for more updates.

Building Partnerships that Count

Be Proud – California is Diverse. Just as our regional economies are diverse across California, so are the adult learners that live in, and contribute to, their communities. Because of this diversity, CAEP empowers 71 regional consortia to design innovations and best practices that align with the goals of adult learners; these innovations are in turn shared among consortium members and partner agencies, sparking a synergistic trading of ideas and a vibrant, growing body of knowledge.

The high quality programs and practices developed through the integration of K-12 adult education and community college resources on a regional level are uniquely suited to equip all available workers with the tools they need to contribute to California’s economic growth.

There are close to 400 CAEP members and more than 1,000 community partners within our 71 consortia that work synergistically through our multiple partner locations in every part of the state to create available access points for adult learners.
