Each year SAEC brings together its members for a joint professional development day as staff prepare for students to return to classrooms. PD topics will be provided for all types of staff. There will be sessions for classified staff, instructional staff, and administrators. Sessions on Adult Basic Education, Adult Secondary Education (including HSE and HSD), programs for recent immigrants including English as a Second Language and citizenship preparation, programs for Adults with Disabilities, and Career Technical Education will address topics like instruction decision making and curriculum, best practices in student support services, and program monitoring and compliance. All presenters are subject matter experts and experienced presenters from the field of adult education. All sessions will be virtual and recorded.

This year SAEC is opening the event to agencies outside of the Sequoia's consortium. It is free to attend. As noted above, we are also adding a special evening schedule for those staff members who work in adult education part-time and may have to attend another event during the day. To further help make the sessions accessible, all will be recorded and available later via the SAEC website at
