NAEPDC 2002 National Training Institute
November 6-9, 2002
San Francisco, CA

 The NAEPDC Professional Development Workgroup, chaired by Linda Warner (IN), continues their work designing an exciting 2002 Fall National Training Institute for Adult Education State Directors and their staff members. 

 The invitation letter, logistics sheet, and tentative agenda are now on our web site at http://www.naepdc.org/2002NTI.html. Highlights include: 

  • Featured Training in using research to inform state policy and practices
    • Updates on the latest research
    • Translations of those findings into standard English
    • Using the Going to Scale process to pilot test and integrate findings to improve the quality of your services
  • Cheryl Keenan’s first presentation as Director of USDOE DAEL will outline her vision of the future routes for adult education and literacy
  • “Resolving National Reporting System (NRS) Issues” in which Cheryl Keenan and Mike Dean (USDOE) will resolve those remaining nagging National Reporting System Issues
  • NIFL LINCs staff will show you where to find the alternative strategies you need to improve program services.
  • NIFL Equipped for the Future (EFF) staff and participating state directors will update you on their performance assessment experiments and overview their work for new state directors.
  • Randy Whitfield (NC) will moderate presentations by states that have been successful in maintaining their state funding during the recent state revenue short falls.

 The tentative agenda on the web site details these and other learning opportunities.

NAEPDC provides travel, room, and most meals for one person from each member state.  Others are welcomed at state expense.  See details on the logistics page on the web site. 

We look forward to seeing you in San Francisco.

Nancy Pindus, Urban Institute Senior Research Associate, asked me to give you a quick update on the Accountability, Funding, and One-Stop Survey.

1.     Less than 10 are in so far

2.     KEEP IT SIMPLE.  You do not have to collect new data for this survey.  Your responses are based on the “desk knowledge” of you and your staff.

3.     CLARIFICATION: 

Item C12 (on p.15 of the survey) asks about Local Grantee Funding Information.  The final column of table asks for "Total AEFLA funding"—this column should reflect the total of federal and state AEFLA funding, if this information is readily available.  Otherwise, please report federal AEFLA funding alone (or whatever figure is readily available from your financial information system) and indicate what sources are included in the figures.

USDOE is collecting this information to help frame the issues for the upcoming adult education legislation reauthorization.  Therefore, it is important to hear from you.

Keep up the good work.  Let me know when we can help.

 UPDATE on WELFARE REAUTHORIZATION

 The proposed Welfare options continue to meander through Congress.  There is a chance the various positions could come together and to fruition this session, or they may linger until the next.  Garrett Murphy, the Policy Analyst for the Consortium and the Council, has been keeping close tabs on the work and below is his current analysis.

Keep up the good work.  Let me know when we can help.
