Retention: Articulation and Recruitment of the At-Risk Student. S.E.E. Model Program: "Students with Education and Experience." A Workshop Presented for Skyline College: "Developing Students for the 90's" (San Bruno, California, April 11-12, 1991).
Collin County Community Coll., McKinney, TX.
Designed for participants at a workshop on at-risk student recruitment and retention, this booklet provides information on SEE (Students with Education and Experience), a cooperative education-based retention program operating in the Collin County Community College District (Texas). After presenting a flow chart of the SEE Model and data on high school cooperative education enrollments, the booklet summarizes data from a survey of 543 Collin County high school cooperative education students who were eligible for participation in SEE. The next section provides an overview of the SEE program, identifying its goals as continued 13th year education, proper assessment, alternative experiential learning, improved student social integration, elevated performance levels, and provisions for income for cooperative education jobs. Steps in the planning, implementation, and evaluation of the SEE program are outlined next, followed by a summary of the goals, objectives, methods, and timelines for each of the program's components: (1) liaison with secondary schools to enhance articulation; (2) an at-risk student identification and referral system; and (3) a model cooperative education curriculum designed to match student capabilities and career interests to appropriate discipline choices, enhance student self-esteem, and provide a student support system. The next section presents results of a program evaluation by an outside consultant, including comments on particular events scheduled for his visit. Appendixes provide forms, promotional materials, the high school student survey instrument and raw responses, and a 52-item annotated bibliography. (AC)
