A Preliminary Review of Student Migration Patterns in the Los Angeles Area.
Los Angeles Community Coll. District, CA. Educational Services Div.
A review is provided of the flow of students to and from colleges in the Los Angeles Community College District (LACCD). First, background is provided on the agreements between the LACCD and coterminus districts regarding interdistrict enrollments in effect prior to or during 1983-84; the effect of the initiation of free-flow policies in 1983-84; and the factors causing LACCD to issue notices to eight of ten districts that their enrollment of LACCD residents would be restricted beginning in spring 1985. Using data provided by the State Chancellor's Office on the number of students residing in the LACCD but attending a college in one of the ten coterminus districts, the following section offers an analysis of student migration among area colleges under the free-flow policies. Information is presented on spring 1984 net enrollment and estimated average daily attendance losses to the LACCD; student characteristics; participation rates of community residents; variations among coterminus districts; policy issues related to the restrictions on student choice, financial concerns, and the academic implications of the loss of the traditional student base by the LACCD; the cost of re-establishing interdistrict agreements; and variations in agreements.
