Butte Community College Secondary/Postsecondary Articulation: The Partnership Concept, the Partnership in Action, [and] Highlights of the Partnership in Action.
Butte Coll., Oroville, CA.
These three reports focus on various aspects of Butte Community College's (BCC's) partnerships with local high schools. In the first report, "The Partnership Concept," partnerships are described as formalized methods of cooperating with secondary schools and helping them be as successful with their students as possible, with the major underlying premise that if local secondary schools are successful, BCC is more apt to be successful in achieving its mission. After stating the mutually shared goals of BCC's Partnership Program, the 10 steps in the partnership process are delineated. The second report, "The Partnership in Action," describes activities conducted under the Partnership Program, including: (1) the Secondary Articulation Council; (2) college catalog and personnel directory distributed to high schools; (3) college classes taught on high school campuses; (4) new student orientation to college; (5) basic skills assessment on high school campuses; (6) facility and equipment sharing; (7) teaching exchanges; (8) joint staff development activities; (9) job shadowing; and (10) career planning workshops for high school teachers and counselors. Finally, "Highlights of the Partnership in Action" focuses on major activities undertaken during the 1989-90 school year, including counselor-to-counselor and faculty-to-faculty activities, course equivalence agreements, high school student visitations to BCC, transition to four-year college activities, student and parent surveys, and the mailing of a promotional brochure, "Consider College," to all high school seniors.
