Adult Education Council 
Purpose: To identify and study issues relating to adult education. To recommend legislative positions to ACSA and advocate for legislation that advances public adult education statewide. To actively enhance and promote adult education’s role with professional organizations, government officials, state agencies, school districts, business, industry, and the community at large. To plan and coordinate professional growth opportunities for administrators of education programs.  2020-21 Chair: Raine Bumatay  Priorities: Our council is dedicated to establishing successful communication strategies with other ACSA councils and committees. Distance learning has come to the forefront of all students’ daily procedures. No other sector was prepared best for distance learning than adult education — that is why this council wants to continually share best practices and advice to other councils in navigating distance learning with their respective students.  Through online presentations and webinars, AEC will provide critical resources and strategies to other ACSA councils/committees that are seeking guidance.  Additionally, AEC will continue to engage stakeholders, legislators, and educational leaders to garner support and awareness around adult education that pays dividends throughout the education community.  Contact:

Purpose: To assist co-administrators (vice-principals, assistant principals, deans, coordinators, etc.) in their role as instructional leaders within their schools and communities. To promote networking and increase communication among co-administrators. To provide access to professional development and mentoring experiences. To increase awareness of the co-administrator’s role and the importance of that role.  2020-21 Chair: Julio Omier  Priorities: The committee has agreed upon the following goals for the 2020-21 academic year: Continue the virtual newsletter Reflections to highlight items and share with ACSA and region presidents; begin a book study of “Leadership and Self-Deception” by The Arbinger Institute to continue to reflect as an instructional leader with a focus on student learning outcomes; continue to use 21st century technology skills throughout the year to support the role of co-administrator; and begin meeting the first Wednesday of each month via Zoom to allow all of the regions across the state to share ideas and best practices and collaborate with one another for support.  Contact:
