AB 1725 Model Accountability System. California Community Colleges. Revised.
California Community Colleges, Sacramento. Board of Governors.
This report proposes a model accountability system for the California community colleges to comply with the directives of Assembly Bill 1725 (AB 1725). The purpose of the accountability system is to provide colleges and districts, the board of governors, and the California legislature with information that will allow for the continued improvement of student learning and success. The AB 1725 model accountability system consists of five components: (1) student access, measured in terms of student enrollments and participation rates, programs to promote educational access (e.g., financial aid, basic skills, and articulation programs) and physical facilities; (2) student success, measured in terms of academic standards, course completions, student goal achievement, basic skills and ESL course preparation assessment, noncredit adult education, and accreditation standards; (3) student satisfaction, assessed by surveys of students and accreditation reports on student services and learning resources; (4) staff composition reflective of California's population, and the accomplishment of local affirmative action goals; and (5) fiscal condition, involving comprehensive reporting on revenues and expenditures, the general fund balance, and system-wide costs per full-time equivalency (FTE). The indicators proposed for each of these components will be used to prepare annual system-wide and institutional reports concerning the effectiveness of California's community colleges in achieving their stated mission. Appendixes present AB 1725 model accountability system elements, the AB 1725 accountability task force, and sample reporting forms. (JMC)
