Performance Improvement Plan, Community Services Division.
Lee, Roberta; And Others
Indicators of quality in the evening, weekend, and outreach programs administered by the Community Services Program are assessed in this report. Part One examines extensive demographic data for the three-county district in terms of population, economic, and educational characteristics. Part Two displays course offerings by geographical location and by specific client groups, including lower division collegiate (college parallel courses), occupational preparatory, occupational supplementary, reimbursable other education (self-improvement), non-reimbursable (hobby-recreation), senior programs, community events, adult basic education, and special programs. Part Three reports the results of instructor, student, and administrator surveys regarding program quality. The results indicate that students, teachers, and administrators are generally satisfied with the community services program and their role within it, but that the program tends to serve those who are already veterans in the educational system, and people with lower levels of educational attainment, lower family incomes, or who are senior citizens are not participating proportionately to their numbers in the district population. A summary of program strengths and weaknesses, a discussion of survey design and methodology, and the questionnaires complete the document. (LH)
