Invitation to Comment on the Implementation of Title II and Title IV of the Workforce Innovatiion and Opportunity Act

Career Pathways members,

I am copying and posting a message that recently appeared on several of the other LINCS lists because it is important for us to share our comments and recommendations about the WIOA too.  Please see below and share your expertise with OCTAE and OSERS before the Friday, August 29 deadline.

Hello Everyone,

I would like to inform the group members that OCTAE and OSERS (Office of Special Education and Rehabilitative Services have invited the public to offer comments and recommendations to help with the implementation of the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA).  Your input can help point out concerns that need to be taken into consideration as draft regulations are being developed. 

This is of particular importance to the members of the College and Career Standards Community Group.  “WIOA requires states to implement adult education content standards that are aligned to their standards under Title I of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965.”  OCTAE wants your ideas about the timeline and implementation issues that go along with fulfilling this requirement.

Comments may be submitted at

These comments can be made now with the deadline of Friday, August 29, 2014.  I urge you to take advantage of this opportunity to express your thoughts and concerns.

Meryl Becker-Prezocki, SME (Assessment)
