High School Articulation.
Farland, Ronnald; Anderson, Connie
An overview is provided of articulation activities between the community colleges and secondary schools of California. Part I reviews the progress made in the implementation of: (1) articulated "2 + 2" vocational education projects; (2) the community colleges' provision of academic performance reports to high schools on their graduates; (3) efforts to secure funding for the articulation project; (4) a study to assess the nature and extent of high school/community college efforts statewide; (5) actions by the Academic Senate of the California Community Colleges including the development of a list of competencies expected of entering college freshmen, a curriculum consultants project, and a statement on college preparation for high school students; and (6) various state legislation packages. Part II summarizes the results of the study of high school articulation, revealing that over 65 colleges reported course or program articulation in occupational education, 38 colleges reported some articulation of coursework in the liberal arts, and 101 colleges indicated some form of outreach activities with high schools. Part III presents six recommendations for the Chancellor's Office and the community colleges to further improve articulation. Appendixes include a list of the Articulated 2 + 2 Vocational Education Projects, a more detailed summary of findings from the survey of current articulation efforts, and a draft of the brochure for high school students on community college preparation.
