Sacramento City Unified School District and Sacramento City College Articulation Council Year-End Report.
Giugni, Tom; Burris, Douglas W.
In 1982, the President of Sacramento City College (SCC) and the Superintendent of the Sacramento City Unified School District (SCUSD) developed the new concept of a joint articulation council to address current problems related to the number of under-prepared students and the possible duplication of effort in basic skills instruction and proficiency testing. To achieve this goal, four objectives were established: (1) curriculum integration and articulation of selected high school and college occupational programs; (2) development of a core assessment/placement model in conjunction with one of the SCUSD feeder high schools; (3) planning of an articulation continuum for instruction programs and student services; and (4) dissemination of information about these activities to appropriate personnel. During the year following its organization, the SCUSD/SCC Articulation Council met eight times and accomplished the formalization of SCUSD/SCC articulation efforts; identified priority areas for articulation study; developed joint committees in the areas of English/English as a Second Language, science/math/computers, counseling services, occupational education, and assessment; and jointly planned and endorsed recommendations emanating from a series of workshops. The bulk of the report on the year's activities of the Articulation Council consists of summaries of the content of the eight council meetings. (LAL)
