On May 18, 2013, Governor Rick Perry signed Senate Bill 307, which transfers the Adult Basic Education system from the Texas Education Agency (TEA) to the Texas Workforce Commission (TWC).
TWC is working closely with TEA to make the transition as smooth as possible.
TWC believes communication with stakeholders and providers is crucial to a good transition. Recently, TWC and TEA sent a letter to current Adult Basic Education grant recipients and English Literacy Civics fiscal agents. In addition, we had a webinar to begin a dialogue about the transition.
TWC recently completed its series of public stakeholder meetings held across the state during June and July 2013. The meetings were attended by over 650 Adult Basic Education providers, Workforce Development Boards and other community stakeholders. The input received from these meetings, both oral and written, is invaluable and will assist TWC with the design and delivery of its new responsibility.
Thank you to all who attended and to our meeting partners for securing the sites and hosting the meetings:
