Background
The Joint Board Task Force on Noncredit and Adult Education was established in 1997 as a result of Governor Pete Wilson's veto message of Assembly Bill 824 which proposed the establishment of a joint working group composed of representatives of the California Community Colleges Board of Governors and the California State Board of Education to address mutually important and recurring issues. The Joint Board Task Force which came to be known as the Joint Board Committee (JBC) held five field public meetings for experts to present testimony on four policy areas: scope of instruction, funding issues, quality and accountability, and collaborative planning. The members that staffed the committee were known as the Interagency Coordinating Team (IACT). In December 1998 the committee produced a report detailing 12 recommendations to promote quality learning opportunities for student success. The committee communicated with the field via a comprehensive Web site.
