CASAS Recognized by California State Senate Resolution

Resolution 



The California State Senate recognized and commended CASAS during the 2010 CASAS National Summer Institute for its contributions to the field of adult education and literacy throughout California and nationally. During the Summer Institute, more than 500 attendees from 27 states and seven countries were honored to have CASAS recognized and commended as the result of a resolution of the California State Senate introduced by State Senator Denise Moreno Ducheny. 

Sharing in this honor and recognition are hundreds of professional adult educators who have collaboratively helped develop CASAS over the years. A special State Senate resolution recognizes the significant contributions and professional service CASAS has made to the people of California and to the field of adult education and literacy in California and across the nation. The award was presented by David Alvarez, Community Liaison for Senator Ducheny, to CASAS President Pat Rickard who gratefully accepted the honor — embodied in a commemorative plaque — on behalf of CASAS and its state and national consortium partners.

The Need: Entry-level workers with the skills to move up

The National Institute for Literacy estimates that businesses lose more than $60 billion in productivity each year because of employees' basic skill deficiencies. A skilled workforce is essential to a company's success.

  • Increase job productivity and employee retention
  • Reduce conflict and tension on the job
  • Reduce expenses for recruiting and training

Workers with strong basic skills learn independently, benefit from training, take on new responsibilities, and move up the career ladder.

  • In- and out-of-school high school level students preparing to enter the workforce
  • Adults transitioning to employment or reentering the workforce
  • Incumbent workers documenting their skills
