Report to the State Legislature on the Progress of the California Community Colleges Affirmative Action Program.
Hayward, Gerald C.; Barbarita, Juana
Pursuant to the California Education Code, Sections 87100-87106, this report summarizes the progress made by the 70 California community college districts in meeting affirmative action regulations calling for the establishment of district hiring programs aimed at increasing the number of women and ethnic minorities employed at all levels of responsibility. The report first examines the legal responsibility of the Office of the Chancellor to monitor district compliance; the effect of current fiscal constraints on this compliance; and the cooperative efforts of the districts to improve compliance. District compliance as of mid-1980 is then examined, followed by a summary of four major problem areas revealed at the 35 districts which were not in full compliance: failure to conduct workforce analyses; failure to identify district employment goals; failure to establish affirmative action advisory committees; and failure to provide adequate staffing for affirmative action offices. The report then examines changes in the percentages of positions held by women, Blacks, Hispanics, Asians, and American Indians from 1977 through 1979. For each group, employment trends are examined in seven professional and non-professional categories. The report concludes with an examination of the role of the Chancellor's Office in securing district compliance and with recommendations for further legislation. Data for each district are appended.
