2 Agenda Reminder: Grant Extensions Field Survey Overview of Legislative Hearings 2

3 Grant Extensions If you plan to spend your AB86 planning funds by June 30, 2015 – you do not need to file for an extension. If you have carryover /leftover funds after June 30, 2015 – you have the option of filing to extend the end date of your grant to 12/31/15. There are no additional funds connected to the extensions.

9 Local Perspectives Bob Harper, Director, Campbell Adult and Community Education, Campbell Union High School District Donna Burns, Dean of Continuing Education, Mt. San Antonio College 9

10 Background – Department of Finance History – Decrease in Enrollments – Bifurcation – Lack of stable funding 2013 Budget Act Reform Changes – Categorical eliminated – MOE – 2015 – Narrowed to 5 program areas – $25 million planning grants – SB 173 recommendations 10

11 Governor’s 2015-16 Budget $500 million in funding Creates regional boards Maintains existing funding for 2015-16 (MOE) Requires annual plans Requires annual report Eliminates adults in correctional facilities program 11

12 Legislative Analyst Office (LAO) Recommendations Integrate other AE funding Require CDE & CCCCO to provide annual statewide allocation plan to Legislature Guidance for Allocation Board – Advisory Shift funding from past to current need Maintain annual expenditure and outcome reports; reduce frequency of regional reports Require CDE, CCCCO, & CWIB to align assessment, metrics and improve data sharing 12

13 Legislative Concerns Proposed governance structure may create bureaucracy and not accountability. Creating local fiscal agent may not be efficient. Governor’s proposal silent on assessment, accountability, and fees. Annual planning adds uncertainty. State Board oversight is unusual. Eliminating AE services in correctional facilities is problematic. 13

14 Staff Questions for Panelists How do we protect and improve successful programs? How do we improve coordination between K-12 and CC providers to ensure students transition? How do we ensure state funds are directed to need and to effective programs? 14

15 Other Questions for Discussion What changes does the administration consider making to the Governor’s proposal? Why place non-Prop 98 stakeholders on regional decision making body? Is there a better model to distribute funding? Should there be more direction to consortia to ensure accountability? How should governance be set up to ensure fair representation? Can CDE and CCCCO determine MOE sooner than August? 15

16 Thursday, March 26, 2015 Senate Budget and Fiscal Review Subcommittee No. 1 Senator Marty Block, Chair 9:30am – State Capitol, Room 3191 gov/files/SUB1/03262015Sub1AdultEd.pdf 16

18 Background Funding Structures Enrollments Report Consortia Plans 18

19 Governor’s Budget Proposal Consortia Plans will be updated and include: – An evaluation of the adult education needs. – An evaluation of the current adult education services. – An evaluation of the funds available for adult education, including from fund sources than the adult education block grant. – Actions that can be taken to address adult education needs. – Actions that can be taken to improve the delivery of services. – Actions that can be taken to better transition adult education recipients into postsecondary education and/or the workforce. – A description of alignment of adult education services with other plans from all providers, including those pursuant to the federal WIOA. 19

20 Governor’s Budget Proposal (cont.) Governance structure – School Districts – Community College Districts – County Offices of Education Joint approval of allocation funds 2015-16 $ allocated first to K-12 MOE 2016-17 $ allocated to consortia 20

21 Subcommittee Questions How far does $500 million go in meeting adult education program needs? Are there factors the Legislature should consider when determining the ongoing funding level for this program? Are the Department of Finance and the Department of Education able to determine the amount of adult education funds that were provided to the five AB 86 adult education areas by school districts under the MOE for purposes of allocation in 2015-16? The Adults in Correctional Facilities categorical program is proposed to be rolled into the adult education block grant. Funds for this program were not part of the adult education MOE in place for the past two years. Do these programs receive the same funding protections in 2015-16 as other adult education programs under the Governor’s proposal? 21

22 Questions (continued) What actions can be taken based on the AB 86 Cabinet report? What actions should be prioritized and what support or guidance is needed from the state to move forward on these actions? What are the characteristics of the most successful regional consortia? Can these be replicated across the state? How consistent are the federal data and accountability requirements under WIOA with the data and accountability measures that the AB 86 Cabinet consider necessary for a state adult education system? 22
