Commitment to Quality: Educational Accountability for California Community Colleges.
Walters, Judy; Fetler, Mark E.
Assembly Bill (AB) 1725 mandates that the Board of Governors of the California Community Colleges (CCC) shall develop and implement a comprehensive Community College educational and fiscal accountability system in order to improve student and institutional performance. The system is to be implemented over a 3-year period beginning not later than 1991-92 and is to produce a published report of CCC accountability. In November 1990, a task force was established to provide consultation on the conduct of a pilot accountability program, and in January 1991 grants were awarded to four Community College Districts for an 18-month project to develop pilot local and state accountability programs and prototype accountability reports. Three reports emerged from the pilot accountability program: a technical assistance guide for designing local pilot accountability programs; a study of state and local accountability implementation costs; and a draft plan for a statewide accountability program. Aspects of the proposed state accountability system would include basic data collection and reporting by the CCC Chancellor's Office; annual long-range accountability studies; improved data collection and dissemination efforts; and establishment of a clearinghouse of exemplary accountability models. The five proposed statewide indicators include student access, student success, student satisfaction, staff composition, and fiscal condition. Appendixes provide task force members, a summary of components of the technical assistance guide, and a detailed listing and description of proposed accountability indicators for statewide reporting.
