Proposals for: New College for the Los Rios Community College District and New Center for the Allan Hancock Joint Community College District.
Newmyer, Joseph; Mangham, Clarence
From 1990 to 2005, student enrollment in the California Community Colleges (CCC) is expected to grow from 1,500,000 to 2 million. The Board of Governors of the CCC has adopted a long-range, capital outlay growth plan for this period, anticipating that six existing campus centers will become full-service campuses; 31 new centers will be established, 8 of which will become full-service campuses; and 1 center will be developed to serve adjacent territories in three districts. The California Education Code stipulates that to establish new colleges or educational centers, a community college district must prepare a proposal which contains an assessment of needs and preferences; identification of objectives; and analysis of alternative delivery systems. Following a brief introduction, this report presents two proposals: one for the construction of a fourth college, Folsom Lake College (FLC), to serve the eastern part of the Los Rios Community College District; and one for the construction a new center, Lompoc Valley Center (LVC), to serve the Lompoc Valley area of the Allan Hancock Joint Community College District. The following sections are included in the proposals: (1) background; (2) analysis of regional and community characteristics; (3) enrollment projections; (4) effects on nearby secondary and postsecondary institutions (FLC proposal only); (5) community support; (6) residents' preferences for community college programs and services (FLC proposal only); (7) labor market requirements (FLC proposal only); (8) programs and services; (9) analysis of alternative delivery systems; and (10) summary and conclusions. Both proposals include appendixes that contain relevant statistical data. (PAA)
