Event description

Description

This is the California Acceleration Project's second annual statewide conference showcasing community colleges that are transforming placement and remediation in English/reading, math, and ESL.

Speakers include Assemblymember Jacqui Irwin, the legislator who championed AB705 and the Basic Skills and Student Outcomes Transformation program, and Dr. J. Luke Wood, Professor of Education at San Diego State University and facilitator of the nationally broadcast course "Black Minds Matter."

This conference is intended for people working with the California community college system, including faculty, administrators, researchers, system leaders, policymakers and advocates, as well as faculty and administrators from CSU and UC. We regret that we do not have the capacity to include attendees from outside of California.
