COLORADO STATE PLAN FOR ADULT BASIC EDUCATION UNDER PROVISIONS OF ADULT EDUCATION ACT OF 1966 (PL 89-750, NOV 3, 1966).
Colorado State Dept. of Education, Denver.
LACK OF FINANCES, QUALIFIED PERSONNEL, AND TRAINING OPPORTUNITIES IN INSTITUTIONS OF HIGHER LEARNING MADE THE PROBLEMS OF EDUCATING THE 250,000 COLORADO ADULTS WITH LESS THAN EIGHT YEARS OF FORMAL SCHOOLING DIFFICULT TO ATTACK. UNDER THE ECONOMIC OPPORTUNITY ACT OF 1964, A COOPERATIVE EFFORT WAS BEGUN BY SCHOOL DISTRICTS AND OTHER AGENCIES TO PROVIDE ADULT BASIC EDUCATION. THE ADULT EDUCATION ACT OF 1966, UNDER WHICH ADULT BASIC EDUCATION IS NOW IMPLEMENTED, PROVIDES THE SAME GENERAL PATTERN FOR CONDUCTING THIS PROGRAM. THIS STATE PLAN OUTLINES SUCH ORGANIZATIONAL ARRANGEMENTS FOR IMPLEMENTING THE ACT AS DESIGNATION OF THE COLORADO DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION AS STATE AGENCY, CUSTODY OF FUNDS, DUTIES OF THE DIRECTOR AND CONSULTANT, COMPOSITION OF THE ADVISORY COMMITTEES, PROGRAM GOALS AND MEANS OF ATTAINING THEM, AND COOPERATIVE ARRANGEMENTS BETWEEN THE STATE EDUCATIONAL AGENCY AND STATE HEALTH AUTHORITY AND ANTI-POVERTY EFFORTS. REGULATIONS FOR INITIATING SPECIAL PROJECTS, TEACHER TRAINING, AND RESEARCH, STATE FISCAL CONTROL AND ACCOUNTING PROCEDURES, AND PROCEDURES FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW AND EVALUATION ARE INCLUDED. THE APPENDIXES ARE THE AUTHORITY OF THE STATE BOARD OF EDUCATION AS WRITTEN IN THE COLORADO SCHOOL LAWS, COLORADO DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION ORGANIZATION CHART, AND COOPERATIVE AGREEMENTS BETWEEN THE DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION AND THE DEPARTMENTS OF PUBLIC HEALTH AND PUBLIC WELFARE.
