We are looking ahead and planning for the future of OACE.
OACE received a grant from the Y&H Soda Foundation for strategic planning. Some initial guiding questions include: What kind of Adult Education program do we want to build? How will we coordinate more effectively within OUSD?
The Northern Alameda County Regional Consortium for Adult Education is working with staff and stakeholders to better coordinate Adult Education services with Adult Schools and the Peralta Community. Chris Nelson is coordinating the Consortium.
OACE is engaging in the renewal process of our accreditation by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC). Elizabet Wendt and Roger Chretien are leading our Self Study Process.
Lastly, we’d like to share a 5-minute, “A Theory of Change” (Harvard),
