A plan for California's postsecondary equal educational opportunity programs is presented. These programs are designed to: increase academic aspirations and preparation of high school or community college students; inform students about financial aid or about specific colleges; increase college students' academic skills to increase their retention; and provide comprehensive services, including outreach, orientation, admissions, and retention. Background information on California's programs covers events since 1964, state funding by type of program, and degrees conferred to members of six ethnic groups. Included are proposals to implement state policy that secondary schools have the leadership role in preparing students for college and that supplementary services for low-income and ethnic minority students be provided cooperatively by high schools and colleges. Proposals for joint efforts to implement a state requirement for informational outreach services are also provided. A timetable for the regular evaluation of postsecondary equal opportunity programs by the California Postsecondary Education Commission is also presented, along with a summary of issues and recommendations for the programs.
