Findings and Planning Recommendations for Linkages between Non-Credit English as a Second Language, Transitional Studies, City College Programs and Outside Agencies.
City Coll. of San Francisco, CA.
This report shows findings and recommendations from the Planning Task Force, a group of faculty and administrators at the City College of San Francisco in California (CCSF) that addresses the establishment and strengthening of linkages between non-credit programs. The Planning Task Force employed several methods of inquiry in order to determine areas of concern regarding non-credit English-as-a-Second-Language (ESL) and Transitional-Studies (TL) programs and develop an action plan. Four goals were established: (1) increase student, staff, faculty, administration, and community awareness of available college programs and services; (2) improve access of ESL and TS students to appropriate programs at CCSF and in the community at large; (3) establish linkages among CCSF programs and outside agencies, and provide adequate resources to maintain them; and (4) conduct systematic research to evaluate non-credit programs. Part 2 of this report reviews available information about non-credit English-as-a-Second-Language and Transitional-Studies students and their educational goals, completion rates, and satisfaction with CCSF programs and services. Part 3 presents a discussion of areas of concern in the CCSF non-credit program, and part 4 presents goals, objectives, and actions proposed by the Planning Task Force. Appended is a list of related research papers and documents available in the CCSF Research and Planning office. (EMH)
