EL Civics Conference, Ceres California
I had the opportunity to present at the Ceres California EL CIVICS conference on Friday, January 25, 2018. It was a large conference with a lot of notable people from Sacramento. Including Chiem-Seng Yaangh and Cory Rayala who are CDE consultants. I am going to try and summarize what was discussed. However, it is complicated. So if anyone who was there reads this, please try and correct me if I am misinformed.
- There are two grants through WIOA-231 and 243
- 231 is the grant for Adult Education and Literacy-EL Civics Program which is the old grant program.
- 243 is the grant for Integrating EL Civics program. This is a completely new program and is integrated with workforce preparation and training. These payments will be higher than 231 paymeents. COAAPS that can be used for 243 funding at located here https://www.casas.org/docs/default-source/el-civics/el-civics-civic-objectives-funded-by-243.pdf?sfvrsn=24?Status=Master
