The 1986 Basic Agenda of the Board of Governors of the California Community Colleges.
Smith, Joshua L.
The Board of Governors of the California Community Colleges' Basic Agenda for 1986 is presented. The Board's basic agenda is a proposed public policy statement that identifies major goals and policy-making activities which the state and the community colleges should initiate or complete during 1986. Five objectives are presented which establish the larger context for community college reform: excellence, mission, finance, governance, and accountability. Goals are identified for each of these areas, including the following: (1) promote excellence in community college programs, services, and employees through the joint efforts of the state and the community college system; (2) clarify and fulfill the mission of community colleges by fully assisting the state's effort to review the mission and by acting to assure access to and success in postsecondary education among all student groups; (3) secure adequate, stable, predictable, and equitable funding for community colleges for 1986-87 and for the long-term; (4) clarify and improve the governance structure for community colleges; and (5) improve state and local accountability for the effectiveness and efficiency of community colleges, with particular focus on improving systemwide accountability functions administered by the Board of Governors. A discussion and a series of recommendations accompany each goal statement. (LAL)
