1985 Master Plan.
Metropolitan Community Colleges of Kansas City, MO. Div. of Planning and Development.
This master plan was drafted in order to provide guidelines for the continuous development of the Metropolitan Community Colleges over the next 10 years. In order to reach consensus, the various chapters were reviewed by college personnel, trustees, and consultants during the planning process, which culminated in a final two-day planning charrette for review and revision of the entire document by faculty, administrators, staff, and students. Section I of the plan presents a statement of district philosophy, mission, and goals. Subsequent sections include: (II) Enrollment Planning Parameters (projections and methodologies); (III) Staffing Parameters (10-year goals for workloads and staff/student ratios for instructional, administrative, support, and classified staff); (IV) Needs Assessment Study (studies of educational needs of business and industry, current students, and the general public); (V) Educational Plan Part I, General Goals (curriculum, learning systems, new delivery systems, faculty development, student development); (VI) Educational Plan Part II, Curriculum (curriculum plan, educational services, planning processes, curriculum approval); (VII) Community Renewal College (proposal for a new community-oriented college without walls); (VIII) Facility Study; (IX) Fiscal Plan; (X) Management and Operations (district and college level responsibilities); (XI) Supplementary Studies (paraprofessionals, transportation study).
