From High School to Community College--A Vital Link in the Articulation Process.
Kintzer, Frederick C.
Junior College Research Review, v6 n10 June 1972
To provide for the needs of student groups such as high school and college dropouts, adults wanting further education, students needing remedial education, and high school students taking college classes, communication between community colleges and high schools is essential. It is recommended that a team relationship be developed between high schools and community colleges to prevent duplication of programs and provide effective service to the community; counseling is at the heart of the process. Several programs which demonstrate such cooperation are reviewed, including concurrent enrollment programs, newsletters sent to high school counselors, subject area conferences, high school advisory committees, and joint workshops of high school and college counselors and admissions staff. Washington and California have encouraged communication by creating state councils and holding statewide conferences on articulation. Regional planning is also possible; the efforts of the Los Angeles Community College District Area Articulation Committee and regional accrediting agencies are cited as examples. (LP)
