The State of the District: Building for a Second Sixty Years of Quality Education.
Harlacher, Ervin L.
During 1974-75, enrollment in the Metropolitan Community Colleges (MCC) (Kansas City, Missouri) increased from 10,589 to more than 21,000 full- and part-time students. The Metropolitan Institute of Community Services (a college without walls) expanded from serving fewer than 2,000 students in 1973-74 to more than 16,000 in 1974-75. From MCC's beginnings in 1915 as the Polytechnic Institute to today's multi-college system, MCC has served more than 200,000 persons in the Kansas City community. This document reports the District's progress in meeting 28 two-year priorities set by the Chancellor's Cabinet in 1974. Special attention is paid to progress in developing a ten-year Master Plan for the District; progress in developing a staff development program; in recoding District policies, regulations, and procedures; in conducting an educational needs assessment; and in expanding access to the District's programs. The document ends with a projection of future District needs and plans, and an appeal for a united drive to pass a $59.5 million bond issue in fall 1976. (Author/NHM)
