THE COMPREHENSIVE COMMUNITY COLLEGE SYSTEM IN NORTH CAROLINA.
North Carolina State Dept. of Community Colleges, Raleigh.
THE NORTH CAROLINA COMMUNITY COLLEGE SYSTEM IS IN THREE PARTS--(1) COMMUNITY COLLEGES OFFER LOWER DIVISION TRANSFER COURSES AND MAY OFFER GENERAL ADULT EDUCATION COURSES AND VOCATIONAL-TECHNICAL PROGRAMS. (2) TECHNICAL INSTITUTES OFFER ORGANIZED PROGRAMS FOR TRAINING TECHNICIANS AND MAY OFFER GENERAL ADULT EDUCATION AND VOCATIONAL, TRADE, AND TECHNICAL SPECIALTY COURSES. (3) INDUSTRIAL EDUCATION CENTERS OFFER VOCATIONAL, TRADE, AND TECHNICAL SPECIALTY COURSES AND MAY OFFER GENERAL ADULT EDUCATION. CRITERIA FOR ESTABLISHING SUCH INSTITUTIONS ARE EDUCATIONAL NEED, ASSURANCE OF LOCAL SUPPORT, AVAILABILITY OF STATE SUPPORT, AND EVIDENCE THAT EXISTING PUBLIC SCHOOL PROGRAMS WILL NOT BE ADVERSELY AFFECTED. A STATE DIRECTOR, RESPONSIBLE TO THE STATE BOARD OF EDUCATION, IS ASSISTED BY NINE KEY PROFESSIONAL STAFF MEMBERS. APPROXIMATELY 65 PERCENT OF THE OPERATING COSTS ARE PROVIDED BY THE STATE, WITH 20 PERCENT FROM THE STUDENT AND 15 PERCENT FROM THE LOCAL DISTRICT. EACH INSTITUTION HAS A STATE-APPROVED ADMINISTRATIVE ORGANIZATION. STATE LAW PROVIDES FOR 12-MEMBER BOARDS OF TRUSTEES FOR EACH COMMUNITY COLLEGE AND TECHNICAL INSTITUTE AND 8-MEMBER BOARDS FOR EACH INDUSTRIAL EDUCATION CENTER. (WO)
