Educational Services Master Plan Project. Phase I: Information.
Adams, Suzanne; And Others
This document reports the findings of four task forces involved in the first phase of master planning for the Peralta Community College District. Task Force I concerned itself with population, revenue, and enrollment trends. Peralta has had financial difficulty because of inflation and a general decline in assessed valuation per ADA. After the initial period of growth (1968-1973), enrollment increases have leveled off. The Task Force suggests the implementation of educational strategies designed to maximize opportunity while maintaining educational excellence and increasing cost effectiveness. Towards that end, Task Force III sought to identify and develop contacts with groups that might benefit from current programs but are not availing themselves of the opportunity, and groups that have traditionally been excluded from consideration in curriculum development (i.e., military, women, hospitals, penal institutions, and the middle class). Task Force IV reported on the projected manpower needs of the district and the colleges' role in fulfilling those needs. Task Force V studied various innovative and alternative educational delivery systems used by other districts and ranked them on the basis of their cost, versatility, and "perturbation" factors. Since computer assisted instruction was highest ranked, the current use of computers at Peralta is assessed in the appendix. (MJK)
