• 2015-16 $ allocated first to K-12 MOE

Subcommittee Questions
• How far does $500 million go in meeting adult education program
needs? Are there factors the Legislature should consider when
determining the ongoing funding level for this program?
• Are the Department of Finance and the Department of Education
able to determine the amount of adult education funds that were
provided to the five AB 86 adult education areas by school districts
under the MOE for purposes of allocation in 2015-16?
• The Adults in Correctional Facilities categorical program is
proposed to be rolled into the adult education block grant. Funds
for this program were not part of the adult education MOE in place
for the past two years. Do these programs receive the same
funding protections in 2015-16 as other adult education programs
under the Governor’s proposal?
