In case you haven’t heard yet the CA Senate Budget Subcommittee 1 voted to approve a 4.05% COLA for Adult Education as well as changes in the funding process for AE.
To review the COLA increase agenda item, refer to Item 7 within the Community College Section by using the following link: COLA agenda item .
To review the agenda item addressing the funding changes, refer to Item 53 within the K-12 agenda by using the following link: Proposed AE funding change.
These votes do not guarantee change within the final 2021-22 State Budget, but it is a start in the right direction. It was disappointing to see AE mentioned as a categorical within the agenda item #7.
