Working together and helping each other achieve.

History of Our Consortium

The North Santa Clara county Consortium was established in 2015.  The Leadership Board (comprised of representatives from DeAnza College, Foothill College, Fremont Union High School District Adult School, Mountain View-Los Altos Adult School and Palo Alto Adult School) is created for the purpose of collaborating and improving the success of adult learners in the region.  Specifically, the Board seeks to implement an annual consortium action plan, revising as needed based on the needs of the community of learners. The specific purposes of the Committee may include the following responsibilities:

  • Collaborating to assist in placing students at employment sites
  • Determining necessary entry-level skills and competencies as well as performance levels for target occupations
  • Facilitating cooperation and communication between the consortium plan and the community
  • Assisting in evaluation and improvement 
  • Assisting the consortium and its programs in setting priorities, including participating in ongoing planning activities 
  • Facilitating joint instructor inservice education / staff development
