People assigned to Welfare-to-Work, CalFresh Education and Training, and Refugee Support Services may also be assigned supervised or unsupervised homework time. Cell-Ed coursework homework time hours are considered supervised homework time and can be documented by the case manager.
Cell-Ed recommends for every hour spent on the application, three additional hours of are credited for homework time. This recommendation depends on a client demonstrating satisfactory progress as defined by the educational provider. (All County Welfare Directors Letter, October 19, 2020.)
