  • AB86 Narrative

    Mt. San Antonio College Regional Consortium for Adult Education

    December 31, 2014

  • Foreword

    An important note regarding funding as MOC for adult schools is scheduled to

    end on June 30, 2015.

    The regional plans outlined in this narrative have been developed with the

    assumption that the current Adult Education Maintenance of Capacity (MOC)/base

    funding level to sustain existing adult education in the schools will be continued through

    a dedicated stream. As a result, all of the strategies in this plan are new or expanded

    activities.

    If dedicated funding is not provided to sustain adult education currently offered by

    the schools, then the first priority in our regional plan will be to assure that our existing

    adult education programs in the schools are sustained, thus avoiding the creation of a

    devastating new gap in our region. The current operating cost for existing adult school

    programs in the region is $33,488,599.00 for the five AB86 categories. Additionally, in

    order to sustain these vital, existing programs, our new and expanded strategies and

    activities will be proportionally limited or eliminated, depending on funding provided to

    our local consortium. The lack of dedicated funding to sustain current adult school

    programs would negatively impact the consortium and restrict strategies to develop

    regional plans and transition pathways.
