Showcasing community colleges that are transforming placement and remediation in English/reading, math, and ESL


With AB705, the landscape for remediation is changing in California.

This conference is the place where community colleges can learn from peers who are already implementing powerful reforms to placement and remediation.

Pre-conference workshops:

  • Full-day sessions on responding to AB705 for math and English faculty
  • 1/2 day sessions highlighting accelerated ESL programs

Plenary speakers include:

  • Assemblymember Jacqui Irwin, champion of AB705 and the Basic Skills and Student Outcomes Transformation Program
