SB 1402 emphasizes aligning the program activities with changing labor market needs, and encourages better integration with career technical education programs. SB 1402 makes the program more accountable by strengthening the evaluation framework for EWD grants and programs.

What Does SB 1070 Do?
SB 1070 establishes the California Community Colleges Economic and Workforce Development Program. Existing law requires the Board of Governors of the California Community Colleges, as part of the program, to assist economic and workforce regional development centers and consortia to improve, among other things, career-technical education pathways between high schools and community colleges, as specified.

You may want to join the call if you want to stay informed about upcoming legislation related to reauthorizing SB70 and EWD funding. Please pass this information on to colleagues who may also be interested, but who are not subscribed to this blog.
