BC Adult Ed

Your South Bakersfield Education and Resource Center


In response to the growing realization that a strong correlation exists between limited education and high unemployment and poverty, and that current strategies are inadequate to equip adult workers, the Senate and House of Representatives passed Assembly Bill 86 in 2013. The bill mandated greater collaboration between community colleges and adult schools, and provided funds in the form of The Adult Education Block Grant (AEBG) to expand and improve the provision of adult education via community college consortium.

The goal of the Kern Community College Consortia is to eliminate barriers for underserved students by bringing resources directly to them rather than expecting them to seek out and travel to resources. Currently, the Bakersfield College Adult Education programs, in collaboration with local adult schools, serve students in North and South Kern County, including locations such as Delano Adult School, Wasco, McFarland, and most recently, the Bakersfield Adult School (BAS).
