What’s happening with Workforce Innovation Opportunity Act (WIOA)?

The Workforce Innovation Opportunity Act (WIOA) has reauthorized educational and workforce development policies. In the next couple of years, WIOA will require a shift in the delivery of adult education literacy instruction and workforce development. Today’s practitioners must align their programs to deliver cutting-edge services that will meet the demands of the 21st century global economy.

 

There are 3 key principles of WIOA:

  • Program Alignment
  • Increased Accountability
  • Enhanced Service Delivery

 

One of the main priorities of WIOA is to begin the implementation of College and Career Readiness Standards (CCRS) for Adult Education and Integrated English Literacy/Civics programs. In the coming months, the NYC RAEN will continue to provide New York City adult education program providers with the most up to date aligned professional development available to meet the requirements of WIOA.

 

For update information concerning the implementation of WIOA please visit the

Unpacking the Standards: Understanding the College and Career Readiness Standards (CCRS)

The College and Career Readiness Standards for Adult Education (CCRS) provide through, clear-cut measures to align instructional offerings that prepare students for 21st century. The shifts described below identify the most significant elements of Common Core for adult learners in all subject areas. The 3 key shifts in the Standards are as follow:

  • Shift 1- Complexity: Regular practice with complex text and its academic language
  • Shift 2 - Evidence: Reading, writing, and speaking grounded in evidence from text, both literary and informational
  • Shift 3 - Knowledge: Building knowledge through content-rich nonfiction

 

The NYCRAEN is committed to providing adult education practitioners with quality professional development workshops aligned with the CCRS.
