Three Year Regional Plan

All 71 Adult Education Consortia in California are required to produce new Three Year Regional Plans, submitted to the state office of the California Adult Education Program on June 7, 2019. All our activities will be aligned to this Regional Plan which maps goals, strategies and determines accountability for funding.

Here is the last Regional Plan that was submitted for approval to the California Adult Education Program (CAEP) Office on March 1, 2015. The South Bay Consortium for Adult Education's Regional Comprehensive Plan for Adult Education (.pdf).

Our process this year is to gather data on community needs, review how successful we've been in the last few years and determine where there is need for growth, and new programs and supports for our students. This information will be from our faculty, students, and community partners and stakeholders. Together we will develop a plan that will specify the goals, strategies and success indicators of our consortium from 2019-2023. Scroll down on this page to see documentation of that process.
