Regulations for New Colleges.
This document proposes specific changes in the California Education Code which would prescribe minimum standards for the formation of public community colleges. The Code regulations would define "college", require the assessment of local needs and preferences before the establishment of a new college, provide objectives for the formation of new college programs and services, present criteria for selecting an appropriate delivery system, require districts to consider alternatives to new college construction for the delivery of the same programs and services, and recommend district identification of proposed sources of funding for both short- and long-term operations. In an appended paper, a state-level role and process for community college planning is proposed. A comprehensive five-year plan is proposed to provide the basis for the Board's legislative, capital outlay, and finance programs, and for apportionment and program allocation and review administration by the Chancellor's Office. This five-year plan would be developed by a Chancellor's Office Task Force, which would be responsible for analyzing all relevant information, identifying short-term and long-term problems, and recommending solutions and policy directions for approval by the Board. The content, time-schedule, and evaluation methods for a five-year plan are discussed. (DC)
