COVID-19 Temporary Guidance
COVID-19 Temporary Guidance
FROM ROBERT PURGA MEMO: COVID-19 GUIDANCE (MARCH 16, 2020)
In an effort to minimize the impact on EPE reimbursable contact hours please consider the following for the approved NYSED GRASP (NRS Levels 4, 5, 6), SMART (NRS Levels 2, 3, 4), or Crossroad’s Café (ESL NRS Levels 3, 4, 5, 6) programs. We have also devised a stop-gate training measure to assist teachers in using one or more of the currently approved NYSED Distance Education programs.
For those teachers/programs that are already approved by NYSED to provide one or all three of the NYSED Distance Learning programs, continue providing these services under the current design. Programs can temporarily increase the number of teachers eligible to provide these 3 programs in the following way:
Note: this training session does not signal that the teacher is certified for NYSED Distance Education, these teachers will need to attend traditional RAEN training for these NYSED programs once this temporary situation has passed. Also, teachers will not receive RAEN PD hours for this training; this is a very specialized training aimed at preserving EPE contact hour generation as best as possible given the current circumstances.

SUBJECT: COVID-19 Guidance (March 20, 2020)
FROM: Robert Purga, Director, ACCES Adult Education Programs
TO: All NYSED funded adult education programs WIOA, ALE and EPE
The WIOA/ALE informational webinar provides revised guidelines for NYSED State and Federally administered adult education programs to provide the maximum allowable flexibility in providing continuity of learning and student engagement for adult education programs. The major priority is to provide flexibility for and support for online learning now that face-to-face classes have become unavailable across the State. We will provide additional webinars for Employment Preparation Education (EPE) training and Adult Literacy Education (ALE) and Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) specific policies and steps in the coming weeks.
COVID-19 Case Management Guidance Webinar (April 23, 2020)
For All NYSED funded adult education programs WIOA, ALE and EPE
Now more than ever, our adult learners need support and referrals from our case managers. NYSED has provided a training webinar specifically designed for case managers from any funded program (ALE, EPE, WIOA, including Literacy Zones). In some cases, these could be teachers that serve a dual role so they may have already attended the Distance Education training NYSED hosted over the past three weeks, this Case Manager training will be very different so they will need to attend if they serve as case managers in any capacity.
NYSED requires that any case manager being paid under ALE, WIOA, or EPE MUST have attend ONE of these two NYSED Case Management trainings. NYSED also asked that all program managers/directors attend one of the two sessions so they are aware of what NYSED is requesting case managers to be doing during COVID-19 Temporary Guidance.
