This three-part report presents the recommendations of the California Postsecondary Education Commission on a proposal by the San Luis Obispo County Community College District (SLOCCCD) to create an educational center in the City of Paso Robles. Part 1 provides the Commission's conclusions and recommendations, indicating that, based on a needs study for center conducted by the SLOCCCD and Commission guidelines, the proposed North County Center should be approved as a permanent educational center. Part 2 offers background information on the proposal, including discussions of statutory requirements for new educational campuses; the origins of the proposal, indicating that the District's single college in San Luis Obispo is at capacity; a general description of the SLOCCCD; and procedures for reviewing proposals. Part 3 provides an analysis of the proposal, including an overview of the commission's findings related to the following criteria: sufficient enrollment projections, a consideration of programmatic and geographic alternatives, adequate plans to serve disadvantaged students and ensure access to the center, sound academic planning, projected budgets, analyses of the environmental and social impact, likely effects on other educational institutions, and economic efficiency. Detailed guidelines for review of proposed educational institutions and a letter containing enrollment projections are appended. Maps of the SLOCCCD service area and regional topography, driving distances, and population growth are included. (HAA)
