Report for Public Community Colleges, 1974-75.
Florida State Dept. of Education, Tallahassee. Div. of Community Junior Colleges.
This report is intended to provide information with which to answer those questions about Florida's community colleges most frequently asked by members of the legislature, state agencies, external agencies, citizens, administrators, faculty members, and students. Introductory sections describe the history, goals and philosophy, and organization of the Florida public community college system. In addition, material on financial support, articulation, and legislative regulations on the establishment of occupational, vocational, and general adult education programs is presented. Appended are 23 tables of data which make up the bulk of the document. These include: opening and end of term headcount enrollment by class, program, and first-time or transfer status; annual FTE (full-time equivalent) enrollment by term and discipline; degrees and other awards; annual salaries for instructional, administrative, and other personnel; revenues and expenditures for the General and Restricted Current Funds; full cost summary per FTE; and direct cost of instruction per FTE by program. Because of its unusual balance of local control with state coordination and support, the Florida community college master plan has been a national model for long-range planning and the orderly development of a statewide system of community colleges.
