The study groups and task forces of the California Community Colleges (CCC) worked on various projects during 1978. A $67,658 federal grant was filed with the Department of Health, Education and Welfare to establish a Clearinghouse on International Education; the Grading Policies Study Group continued to examine existing regulations on selected policies with the intent of making recommendations aimed at system-wide grading consistency; and the Advisory Committee on General Education reviewed the work of the California State University and Colleges Task Force on General Education in order to make recommendations regarding CCC guidelines. The Vocational Education Data System (VEDS) was mandated as the major data collection effort for federally funded vocational education programs. At a special meeting with the Director of VEDS, the Board of Governors recommended a delay of implementation and re-evaluation regarding the need for additional information that is being required; the usefulness of this data; and the level of detail required. The Task Force on Community College Counseling prepared a Special Progress Report covering counseling program reductions and personnel changes resulting from financial restrictions. The main Task Force report and nine counseling sub-committee reports, plus the names of Task Force members are included in the Chancellor's Report. (DJD)
