Additional Studies for Strategic Plan
Maury Pearl will provide additional studies that should be considered for our next plan:
- Growth of Online Instruction Study: includes successful course completion, district-wide enrollments for all disciplines and the percentage of enrollment that is online.
- LACCD Exit Points Study: details where we lose students. This study reviews district-wide data for new student cohorts entering in fall 2007. Line 1 (attempted units in fall 2007) begins with 18,700 students who entered and Line 12 (completed degree or certificate) ends with the number of students who stayed with us long enough (1,621) to complete a degree or certificate disaggregated by race and ethnicity.
- Impact of Title 5 Course Repeatability Limitations on FTES and Student Success Study: details the impact of the new Title 5 regulations on the number of times that a student can attempt a course and the likelihood of the student’s attempt with four or more repeats.
- Unit Completion and Persistence Study: looks at the fall 2007 cohort of new students who attempted units (12,051) and what percent (24.3%) did not complete one single unit by the end of their first semester. Considers students who were enrolled at census.
Strategic Planning Website
Bradley Vaden has put up the Strategic Planning website. Please visit the LACCD home page and click on the link What’s New.” The Strategic Plan, Achieving the Dream, and the Student Success Initiative are listed together due to their alignments. Please be prepared to give feedback on what you like or don’t like about the site. I’ve also asked Bradley to add a section titled “Opportunities for Input” detailing how staff can provide us with input and will ask the Chancellor to send out the link to the website in his next Chancellor’s Update to all employees.
Mission, Vision and Core Values
Continue review of these three important sections of the Strategic Plan and come to resolution on the changes.
Goals and Objectives
Consider strategic challenges, advantages, SWOT feedback, summative evaluation of last strategic plan (i.e. goals substantially achieved, progress make, little progress made, and District Planning recommendations to either continue or revise these goals in the next cycle). We will be joined by the District Planning Committee at 1:30 pm who will work on setting the performance metrics.
