The Governor is getting his 2015 budget ready. We need you to email him to save Adult Schools in California by: giving dedicated funding to K12 Adult Schools, having robust accountability requirements that includes partnering with the California Community Colleges, and resurrecting those adult schools that were eliminated. Please feel free to cut and paste the above and fill out the Governor email form at (https://govnews.ca.gov/gov39mail/mail.php) or call and leave him a message at 916-445-2841. Your 30 seconds could make a HUGE difference in the future of K12 Adult Schools.

Myth #4: The Maintenance of Effort (MOE) under the FY 13-14 budget ensured school districts must continue to fund adult education.
Fact: The MOE requires school districts who were funding adult education in FY 12-13 to continue the same level until 2015. Currently, beginning in FY 15-16, there will be no funding for K-12 adult education.
PLEASE SIGN THE PETITION AND SHARE ON FACEBOOK, INSTAGRAM AND TWITTER. SPREAD THE WORD. WE NEED TO BE HEARD!

The Governor needs to decide now if he will fund Adult Education in 2015. What can you do? Email the Governor and request "dedicated funding for K-12 Adult Education" and to have it "sent to school districts, not the College Chancellor's Office."
Myths 2 and 3:
Myth #2: The AB 86 regional consortia budget trailer bill contained funding for adult education.
Fact: AB 86 process only provided $25 million for planning purposes – no programmatic funding was included.
Myth #3: LCFF funds can be used for adult education.

The Governor needs to decide now if he will fund Adult Education in 2015. I'll be posting a myth and fact from the California Council for Adult Education. What can you do? Email the Governor and request "dedicated funding for K-12 Adult Education" and to have it "sent to school districts, not the College Chancellor's Office."
Myth #1: The Governor has promised $500 million to fund adult education ongoing.
