Los Angeles Community Coll. District, CA.
A summary record is provided of the achievements realized and the problems encountered by the nine colleges of the Los Angeles Community College District during the 1986-87 school year. Following a district overview, the narrative reports of the nine colleges are presented. Each report includes information on the college's mission, functions and goals; instructional programs; instructional support and student support services; community services; planning, research, and development; community relations; and administrative services. Highlighted trends and achievements include the following: (1) the reversal of the four-year decline in District enrollment and weekly student hours; (2) the initiation of efforts to increase community visibility, such as selected mailings and media publicity, and improved articulation with high schools; (3) the change of the start of classes from August to September to facilitate the enrollment of mothers with school-age children; (4) the development of the Project for Adult College Education, which offers working adults 12 units of transfer credit per semester, with intensive evening and Saturday instruction; and (5) the continued attrition of resources in areas where no special funding was available.
