Professional development system

CALPRO provides professional development activities for adult education providers (adult schools, community college non-credit programs, community-based and faith-based organizations, and library literacy providers).

The Comprehensive Adult Student Assessment System (CASAS) trains adult educators on how assessment can help guide instruction.

The California Distance Learning Project (CDLP) assists adult education providers in making teaching and learning work outside of a traditional classroom setting.

The Outreach and Technical Assistance Network (OTAN) offers professional development opportunities for integrating technology in the classroom for both the adult educator and the adult learner.

STAR implementation

California implemented STAR in seven school districts and two Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (state prison) sites. Each site has one or more teachers participating with a total of 18 teachers in the project. Each teacher is implementing STAR in one classroom.

All classes are Adult Basic Education (ABE) with direct classroom instruction. Most classes are multi-level. The adult education teachers are all required to have an appropriate credential issued by the state in addition to at least a Bachelor's degree.
