Agenda At-A-Glance

Wednesday Workgroups

Adult Education Workgroup | Wednesday, March 13, 9:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m.

For the past year, an Adult Education Advisory Group has been sharing recommended alignments for EdReady, as well as considerations for expanding our offerings to better address English literacy and career-pathways initiatives in tandem with WIOA. In this session, we will attempt to prioritize the improvements that could have the greatest impact for these learners and identify some of the special implementation (i.e. adoption, training, and distribution) challenges we must consider. All are welcome to attend this special interest group.

Partnerships for the Future Workgroup | Wednesday, March 13, 9:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m.

In this session, we will look more closely at some of the educational areas that warrant deeper investment consideration. Additionally, we will discuss potential partnerships that could help us better meet our mission of improving student access and equity. We anticipate breaking into a few clusters based on interest. Topics may include: career and technical education, MTSS / RTI, English literacy, alternative education, and expanding content areas. All are welcome to attend this special interest group.
