2016-17 Programs & Services
In 2015-16, the Plumas County Adult Education Program, now known as OnRamp to Employment, awarded over $633,000 to support fifteen projects, developed and managed by six CBOs, three Feather River College departments and the Plumas Unified School District/County Office of Education. Since January 2016, these projects have significantly increased services available to Plumas adult learners, and began closing gaps in six of the seven State mandated Adult Education Program Areas. (The exception is preapprenticeship training, because Plumas County has no State-recognized apprenticeship programs.)
While leveraging community capacity is an excellent model for this region, the 2015-16 program lacked the mechanisms with which to fully integrate the CBO projects into the coherent program required by the State. With the goal of developing a Plumas Adult Education “School System,” OnRamp created and recently implemented a major restructuring plan. There are three basic components, all of which involve instituting program-wide procedures, processes, instruments and outcomes that align with State requirements.
For the 2016-17 program, OnRamp awarded nearly $470,000 for the provision of support and instructional services to Plumas County adult learners, plus approximately $261,000 to community agencies to implement the Consortium’s restructuring plan.

Students in Plumas County Jail attend classes conducted by three culinary professionals and engage in online distance education classes to complete the first steps of their culinary career.
Feather River College, Early Childhood Education $46,000
The Plumas County system of child care is in crisis, due to the lack of qualified and credential workers in this area. This project addresses this crisis by helping to remove barriers that prevent adult learners to access post-secondary education, obtain certificates and degrees, enter or re-enter the workforce entry, and receive training to improve the success of elementary school children.
Plumas Crisis Intervention and Resource Center $58,000

Adult Education: Reaching goals and dreams for all learners
This is a comprehensive plan to meet the needs of adult learners with pre-apprenticeship evening courses at each high school; ESL programs; online licensing for Accuplacer and GED test prep; and an adult education liaison at Plumas County Community School. Additional programs will serve disadvantage students through classified and certificated professional development and provide training for adults working with elementary and secondary children.
