A Demographic and Student Outcomes Profile of AFDC Students Enrolled in Los Rios Colleges: Fall 1996.
Beachler, Judith; La, Minh
The four reports collected in this document describe the characteristics and academic outcomes of the Aid to Families with Dependent Children (AFDC) recipients attending California's Los Rios Community College District as of the end of fall 1996. The first report describes the characteristics of AFDC recipients and legal immigrant AFDC recipients enrolled at the District's three campuses, including data on their total enrollment; enrollment by gender, ethnicity, and age; new or continuing enrollment status; units completed; academic goal and major; and single parent status by gender, ethnicity, and age. The second report presents the same data for AFDC recipients enrolled at the District's El Dorado and Folsom Lake educational centers. The third report describes academic outcomes for AFDC recipients at the District's three campuses, including data by campus on units attempted and completed, average grade point average (GPA), and retention and success rates for all AFDC students, those who are single parents, and those who are legal immigrants. The final report presents an executive summary, analyzing the data presented in the first three reports and indicating that district-wide they accounted for 7.7% of enrolled students; African-Americans accounted for 23.7% of AFDC recipients, while they accounted for only 10.4% of the entire student population; and AFDC recipients attempted and completed more units and had only slightly lower GPAs than the entire student body.
