SB 673, as amended, Portantino. Adult Education Block Grant Program: reporting requirements.
Existing law creates the Adult Education Block Grant Program under the administration of the Chancellor of the California Community Colleges and the Superintendent of Public Instruction. The program requires the chancellor and the Superintendent, with the advice of the executive director of the State Board of Education, to divide the state into adult education regions and approve one adult education consortium in each adult education region, as specified. Existing law requires the chancellor and the Superintendent to provide to the Director of Finance, the State Board of Education, and the Legislature preliminary reports on or before October 30 following each fiscal year for which funds are appropriated for the program and final reports on or before February 1 of the following year about the use of specified funds and outcomes for adults statewide and in each adult education region.
This bill would require the Legislative Analyst’s Office chancellor and the Superintendent to convene a task force that includes certain representatives to review these reporting requirements, as specified, develop findings and recommendations based on its review, and submit its findings and recommendations to the Department of Finance and the Legislature no later than January 1, 2023.
