California is one of eight states selected to participate in the U.S. Department of Education, Office of Vocational and Adult Education initiative, Policy to Performance: Transitioning Adults to Opportunities. Over the next 25 months, California will receive targeted technical assistance and customized coaching to examine, analyze and develop policy that is unique to the state's context and meets the needs of our state's adult low-skilled learner population. There will be a kick-off meeting for participating states on Feb. 1, 2010.

The purpose and objectives of Policy to Performance include:

  • Enhancing college and career readiness for low-skilled adults through increased and quality access to training and learning opportunities
  • Providing comprehensive technical assistance on crafting strategic policies that support college and career readiness for low-skilled adults
  • Helping adult education state directors to connect adult transition policies to larger policy initiatives in their states
  • Providing policy tools, dissemination strategies and resources to assist all states in transitioning adults through the postsecondary education, training and employment continuum

More information about the project is available on the Policy to Performance Web site.
