EOPS Annual Reports for 1988-89 and 1989-90.
Scott-Skillman, Thelma; Tarrer, Rod
The Extended Opportunity Programs and Services (EOPS) were established by the California legislature in 1969 to provide financial and academic support to educationally disadvantaged, full-time community college students residing in California. As part of its annual reporting requirements, the Chancellor's Office of the California Community Colleges must provide the legislature with data identifying trends and issues in the state's EOPS program. These 1988-89 and 1989-90 EOPS annual reports provide program information in the following areas: (1) emerging trends in EOPS student demographic characteristics and educational goals; (2) findings from the statewide survey of EOPS programs, including program funding and expenditures from both state and local allocations; (3) a comparison of EOPS students with other full-time students, examining age, gender, ethnicity, high school graduation status and educational goals; (4) EOPS activities and services, including the percentage of students participating in recruitment and outreach, instructional services, counseling and assessment, financial aid, transfer services, job/career employment services, and child care; and (5) efforts to improve EOPS data collection. Comparative analysis of data for the two periods (1988-89 and 1989-90) reveals that the total number of EOPS students rose from 41,164 to 45,168; the percentage of EOPS students with high school diplomas dropped from 73.5% to 69.5%; the number of EOPS students receiving EOPS direct grants dropped from 61.4% to 55.3%; and the percentage of EOPS students utilizing child care services dropped from 2.7% to 1.5%. Data tables are included. (GFW)
