Story, Sherie; And Others
This four-part report provides data tables and information describing Washington state's 27 community colleges and their students, personnel, financial operations, and facilities and capital planning. The report's introduction begins with highlights of major changes in the system, including an 11% increase in student enrollments, a decline in the number of faculty, and an increase in student/faculty ratio. It goes on to provide a history of the community colleges, information on vocational programming, and a discussion of student costs and sources of financial aid. Part I provides data on levels of and changes in enrollments for the system as a whole and by college. Enrollments are broken down by student category (i.e., academic, occupational, or community service); by source of support (i.e., state, contracted, or personal); and by district and college. This section then details student/faculty ratios, total number of sections taught, enrollment by instructional category, degrees conferred by field of study, high school diplomas granted, and transfers to and from community colleges. Part II provides data on levels of and changes in numbers of faculty, administrative and professional personnel, and average levels of remuneration. Part III gives an overview of community college financial operations including expenditures by program, expense category, college, and district. Part IV offers information on appropriations of capital funds and development of college facilities. (HB)
