LARAEC will provide seamless pathways to workforce and higher education that are efficient, comprehensive, student-centered, and regionally relevant.
LARAEC will sustain, expand, and improve adult education.
With a geographic footprint of over 800 miles and 100,000 students, LARAEC serves as the largest adult education consortium in California. LARAEC is a collaboration of five member districts:
- Burbank USD
- Culver City USD
- Los Angeles USD
- Montebello USD
- Los Angeles Community College District.
Partners include other adult education stakeholders in the Los Angeles area including Workforce Investment Boards, the City of Los Angeles’ Workforce Development Department, the Los Angeles Public Library, and several community-based organizations.
In 2015, LARAEC stakeholders identified regional adult education needs using Assembly Bill 86 funding, culminating in the Regional Comprehensive Plan. Subsequent legislation through Assembly Bill 104 provided Adult Education Block Grants to 71 consortia throughout California. These AEBG funds provide consortia with the resources to implement their respective plans.
