KANSAS STATE PLAN FOR COMMUNITY JUNIOR COLLEGES.
Kansas State Dept. of Public Instruction, Topeka.
LEGISLATION IN 1965 ESTABLISHED A STATE SYSTEM OF COMMUNITY JUNIOR COLLEGES AND STIPULATED THE DEVELOPMENT OF A STATE MASTER PLAN BY THE STATE DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION. THE PLAN PROVIDES FOR ESTABLISHING NOT MORE THAN 22 JUNIOR COLLEGE AREAS, WHICH SHOULD PUT A JUNIOR COLLEGE WITHIN REASONABLE COMMUTING DISTANCE OF EVERY POTENTIAL STUDENT IN THE STATE. CRITERIA FOR DETERMINING COMMUNITY JUNIOR COLLEGE AREAS ARE (1) THE EXISTENCE OF POST-HIGH SCHOOL EDUCATIONAL NEEDS NOT BEING MET BY EXISTING INSTITUTIONS, (2) THE EFFECT OF A NEW COLLEGE ON THE PROGRAMS OF EXISTING INSTITUTIONS, (3) THE NUMBER OF POTENTIAL STUDENTS, AND (4) AN ADEQUATE FINANCIAL BASE. A FEASIBILITY STUDY MUST BE COMPLETED AND THE REPORT MUST BE APPROVED BY THE STATE PRIOR TO A LOCAL ELECTION TO ESTABLISH A COMMUNITY JUNIOR COLLEGE DISTRICT. THE COMMUNITY COLLEGE CURRICULUM MUST BE COMPREHENSIVE, PROVIDING (1) TRANSFER PROGRAMS, (2) VOCATIONAL EDUCATION TO PROVIDE PRE-ENTRY, TRADE EXTENSION, AND RETRAINING COURSES, (3) COURSES IN GENERAL EDUCATION DESIGNED TO MEET INDIVIDUAL NEEDS, AND (4) SPECIALIZED TRAINING IN PUBLIC SERVICES. THE REPORT INCLUDES PROPOSALS FOR NEW LEGISLATION AND A LIST OF CRITERIA FOR STATE ACCREDITATION OF THE COMMUNITY JUNIOR COLLEGES. (WO)
