  • 1. Basic Education 5-Year Grant Debrief: May 9, 2014
  • 2. Faculty Feedback November 2013 • Commitment level of students not OK-- ease of attending with no consequences for lack of homework, participation, absences, less chance of success in future programs or work. • We need to look at how students are placed and moved from level to level; ESL-ABE alignment. • How can we transition students more effectively? Not all students need GED classes after ABE classes? Some can go straight to college level classes. • Change curriculum so that there is more consistency between levels. • Not working: ABE is not graded, so classes do not meet pre-reqs for college classes (exception—student gets higher Compass score) (Compass repeat costs $$) • Upgraded curriculum reflecting standards & new GED tests. • Where do ESL students go after Foundations?
