The Monterey County Workforce Development Board (WDB) uses the Common Measures standardized performance goals set by the U.S. Department of Labor to oversee the workforce development system and evaluate the performance of Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) service providers.
For Program Year 2015-16 (July 1, 2015 through June 30, 2016), Monterey County successfully exceeded the standardized performance goals for WIOA-funded programs serving Adults and Dislocated Workers (DW). (Achieving 80% or greater is considered meeting the goal.) For the Youth program, Monterey County achieved two of the three youth performance measures above 80% of the negotiated performance goals. Successful performance includes youth who were placed in employment or education and youth that attained a degree or certificate. The youth literacy or numeracy gain was below goal with a local success level of 39%.
