Reorganization of the Peralta Community College District: A Study of Reorganization of the Territory Presently Included in the Plumas County Portion of the District. Assembly Concurrent Resolution No. 54.
Alt, Weston M.
In compliance with legislative mandate, this two-part report provides a comprehensive feasibility assessment of the reorganization of territory presently included in the Plumas County portion of the Peralta Community College District (PCCD). Part I begins with an overview of the study and its background, and then discusses barriers to and qualities of good district organization. After tracing the history of Feather River College (FRC) and movements to disassociate the college with the PCCD, the report describes the FRC Advisory Board and its interaction with the PCCD Board of Trustees. Areas of concern and dissatisfaction with the present district organization are examined prior to a discussion of the legal considerations involved in district reorganization. Decisions required by the PCCD Board of Trustees in the event of reorganization are cited, followed by enumerations of problems associated with the operation of a small college district and with a multicollege district. Finally, community reactions to the reorganization are summarized. Part II begins with population and financial projections, and then considers the funding implications of district reorganization. Next, detailed analyses are presented for 29 reorganization alternatives. Extensive appendices include analyses of special problems, discussions of the possibilities of operating FRC as a college center or as part of the Plumas Unified School District, and other related materials.
