1. ABA-Approved Paralegal/Legal Studies Program

The Business Department is pleased to announce that the American Bar Association has granted approval to the Paralegal/Legal Studies program offered by City College of San Francisco effective Fall Semester 2017.

California Business and Professions Code Section 6450 lists the educational criteria to become a paralegal, one of which is “a certificate of completion of a paralegal program approved by the American Bar Association”. City College is pleased to now offer such approval on its paralegal certificate.

For more information on the ABA approval and the Program, please contact Dora Dye, Program Coordinator, at 415-239-3508.

2. Integrated Basic Education and Skills Training - September 22

The Adult Education Block Grant is sponsoring a training on IBEST (Integrated Basic Education and Skills Training) on Friday, September 22, and we would like you to join us there! This training is essential for those who are team-teaching with ESL or TRST, or would like to do so in the future. The training will be different from past IBEST trainings, so even those who've attended in the past should participate. Please spread the word!
Date: Friday, September 22, 2017
Time: 8:30 AM - 4:00 PM
Light breakfast & hot lunch provided
Location: Bamboo Room, 4th
 Floor, Chinatown North Beach campus

You will be informed by Sept 12 if your application has been accepted. If you're accepted and you normally teach on Fridays, the Adult Ed Block Grant can pay for a substitute. 
Washington State’s Integrated Basic Education and Skills Training Program (I-BEST) quickly teaches students literacy, work, and college-readiness skills so they can move through school and into living wage jobs faster. This semester CCSF has over 17 different classes taking place based on the IBEST model - see attached flyer for more details. The San Francisco Adult Education Consortium is thrilled to host a day-long training on how IBEST can be adapted for use in California, led by expert William Durden.
