Washington Community College Study.
Washington State Board for Community Coll. Education, Olympia.
The history, administration, and governance of the Washington Community College System (WCCS) are analyzed in this seven-part report prepared for the state legislature. Part I presents background information on the WCCS's role and mission, history, students, programs, personnel, facilities, finances, student costs, and future. Part II discusses public opinion of WCCS's performance based upon a 1980 survey of 1,173 households, which sought information about past attendance, satisfaction with programs and services, awareness of and participation in vocational/technical institutes, degree of confidence in various educational systems, and demography. Part III examines the configuration of district boundaries and the effects of boundary modifications. The functions of multi-campus district offices are described in Part IV, and their relationships with individual colleges and the State Board for Community College Education are considered. Part V analyzes the governance of the WCCS and describes each of the statewide organizations, committees, and agencies that influence decision-making at community colleges. Part VI analyzes the question of the desirability of maintaining a dual system of vocational education, under which community colleges and vocational/technical institutes operate separately. The final section provides a special report on Olympia Technical Community College. (JP)
