Students Get A Seat At The Table

Fantastic news!

Students will (finally) get a seat at the decision-making table.

There will be two student reps amongst the new AB86 Workgroup Configuration.

Hit the "read more" link to learn more.

AB86 has also (finally) issued information about these changes.  You can read their info here.

The newest list of AB86 Workgroup members, which includes 2 slots for Student Reps, is below.

Before you read it, take a minute to consider the huge efforts students have made and continue to make to speak up about Adult Education, Adult Schools, and their right to be heard and included.

Read what San Mateo Adult School Student Council President Marco said about the need for student inclusion.

And say thank you to Marco and all the other students who spoke up for what should have been recognized long ago: 

Students Matter.  If we are going to build the best Adult Education system possible, their experience, ideas, insight, and wisdom must be at the decision-making table.
