The Adult Education Block Grant (AEBG) North Santa Clara County Student Transition Consortium (NSCCSTC) encompasses the Foothill-De Anza Community College District service area located in the heart of Silicon Valley and serves the communities of Cupertino, Los Altos, Los Altos Hills, Mountain View, Palo Alto, Sunnyvale and portions of San Jose.  This grant started in March 2014 and is ongoing.

NSCCSTC is a partnership effort between the Foothill-De Anza Community College District (FHDA), Palo Alto Unified School District-Adult School (PAUSD), Fremont Union High School District Adult School (FUHSD) and the Mountain View-Los Altos Union High School District Adult School (MVLA). Our collective mission is to coordinate and integrate programs, create linkages, and develop regional plans to better serve the educational needs of adults in the region.

Consortium Objectives

This partnership seeks to explicitly identify the policies, pathways, and procedures for transitioning students seamlessly from one learning venue to another.  Our overall objectives are to:

  • Set up a coordinated system that allows students to seamlessly move between systems and into the workforce.
  • Align and share applicable assessments.
  • Establish a student data-tracking system including individual student’s learning plan.
  • Remove barriers to student access and educational/employment goals.
  • Provide student support through counseling, supplemental instructional support, and referrals for childcare and transportation when needed.
  • Ensure that staff and faculty have the tools and resources to effectively work with transitioning students.
  • Increase business and industry partnerships to enhance student opportunities for apprenticeships, mentorships, job shadowing, and employment.
