Continuous Improvement Plan (CIP) Q&A Session (sent January 31, 2024)

2023–24 Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA), Title II: Adult Education Family Literacy Act (AEFLA)

Dear Adult Educators:

We invite you to participate in the live Continuous Improvement Plan (CIP) Question and Answer session (Q&A session), hosted by Dr. Carolyn Zachry and OTAN staff, scheduled for noon on Tuesday, February 6, 2024. Before the Q&A session, we encourage you to familiarize yourself with the recorded CIP webinar and CIP Plan Guide, accessible on the CIP web page through the WIOA Navigation menu of the Adult Education Online Application and Reporting Site (reporting site).

The Continuous Improvement Plan portal is now open. Click the blue button labeled “Start Plan” or “Edit Plan” on the main CIP web page to enter the portal. This year's CIP requires agencies to develop three Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant, and Time-based (SMART) goals and action plans for implementation in the 2024–25 Program Year. Importantly, at least one of the goals must be technology related. The deadline for submitting the CIP is Tuesday, April 30, 2024.

Secure your spot for the live Q&A session and explore additional CIP-related webinars facilitated by subject matter experts, available on the Professional Development Calendar.

If you have any questions, please contact the Adult Education Office at 916-322-2175, or by email at
