Annual Information Digest, Los Angeles Community Colleges, 1991-1993.
Providing historical data up to 1991-93 on the nine colleges in the Los Angeles Community College District (LACCD), this statistical digest presents tables and graphs on student characteristics, enrollment trends, instructional programs, student performance and articulation, special services, and fiscal and personnel resources. Highlighted findings for the district include the following: (1) while Asian and Hispanic students have increased in numbers and percentages over the last decade, White students have steadily declined since 1975 and Black students have maintained stable enrollment patterns since the 1980's; (2) foreign student enrollment increased 15% districtwide; (3) for the fall 1989 cohort, half of all students stating degree goals and more than three-quarters of Black degree-seekers left college after their first year, resulting in an overall success rate for the degree seeking cohort of 21% after 3 years; (4) since 1984, mathematics has had the most weekly student contact hours of any discipline, while English as a Second Language began to decline in fall 1992; (5) the numbers of students transferring from the LACCD decreased during the past decade; and (6) considerable non-credit ESL enrollment has been lost since the expiration of the enrollment deadline for the amnesty program for illegal immigrants. Includes a district map and a glossary of terms. (MAB)
