High School/Hartnell Coordinating Council 1985-86 Year-End Report.
In spring 1985, Hartnell College and 10 area public and private high schools in California formed the High School/Hartnell Coordinating Council (HSHCC) to facilitate communication and cooperation between the high schools and the college. During 1985-86, HSHCC undertook the following activities: (1) monthly meetings to address issues of concern to all Salinas Valley educators; (2) the first Salinas Valley College Night, during which representatives from 50 colleges and universities were available to Salinas area high school students; (3) three full-day articulation workshops focusing on mathematics, English, and counseling, during which participants shared information regarding course content, assessment techniques, and counseling; voiced expectations for student performance; and identified mutual professional issues and problems; and (4) articulation events developed by high school and college faculty from the areas of art, business education, English as a second language, science, and social studies. Among the outcomes of these activities were the formation of the Mathematics Council of the Salinas Valley, the development of a course matrix indicating course equivalency in mathematics among schools, the identification of all required literature from grades 9 through 14, the administration of assessment tests by Hartnell personnel in area high schools, and the development of greater understanding and more positive attitudes. Goals for the following year include the continuation of articulation in currently involved disciplines; the expansion of articulation efforts into new areas including social and natural sciences and technology; the coordination of dropout prevention programs in the high schools; and the organization of programs allowing for concurrent enrollment.
