Antelope Valley Community College District Education Center.
An analysis is provided of a proposal to the Board of Governors of the California Community Colleges by the Antelope Valley Community College District (AVCCD) to develop an education center in Palmdale to accommodate rapid growth. First, pros and cons are discussed for the following major options: (1) increase utilization and/or expand the existing Antelope Valley Campus; (2) utilize local high school facilities and/or vacant commercial facilities; (3) share facilities with other postsecondary institutions; (4) use nontraditional modes of instructional delivery; and (5) establish an educational center in southeast Palmdale area. Based on these arguments, the report indicates that the Board approved the proposal to develop the Palmdale Education Center. Next, a description of the Center is provided, indicating that it will be located on 100 acres on the southeast edge of Palmdale as part of a proposed development to include a commercial center, golf course, and residential units. This section also indicates that initial Center enrollment is estimated at 2,942 in 1998 and describes the effects of the Center on local schools and the community. Appendixes include a map of AVCCD boundaries; land use and campus plans for the site; a street map of the region; enrollment forecasts for the AVCCD; and letters of support from local educational institutions, elected officials and business leaders.
