Adult and Community Learning Services (ACLS)

Resources

ACLS hosted two performance standards webinars in December of 2016. The webinars can be found on both the ACLS performance standards webpage and SABES' ACLS webpage. Note that in the webinar ACLS called the partial credit (noted above) "bonus" credit. After the webinar, ACLS decided that the term "partial" credit better described the additional credit for outcomes beyond the initial MSG; therefore, we changed the term from bonus to partial credit.

Coffee & Accountability

In an effort to make accountability approachable and to give the field an opportunity to ask questions about performance standards on a regular basis, ACLS staff members now host Coffee & Accountability webinars on the last Friday of each month from 10:00 to 10:45 a.m. Each webinar focuses on one aspect (e.g., follow-up period; EFL; state MSG vs. federal MSG) of the performance accountability system. Because ACLS recognizes how busy directors and their staff are, the webinars are brief. Grab your coffee, log in, and ask us questions!
