Illinois Community College System Results Report, Fiscal Year 1999.
Illinois Community Coll. Board, Springfield.
This is the first annual Results Report for the Illinois Community College System. For each of the six statewide goals, the report provides information on stated Illinois Community College Board (ICCB) and college priorities, common and individual college initiatives and actions, and state-level initiatives that support the goal. ICCB staff review the statewide data that are routinely collected from the colleges, as well as many performance indicators that currently exist in a number of accountability initiatives, such as the Performance-Based Incentive System, Perkins Plan, the Workforce Investment Act, and others to determine useful benchmarks for documenting progress toward the statewide goals. These goals are as follows: (1) to sustain strong economic growth; (2) to join with elementary and secondary schools to improve teaching and learning at all levels; (3) not to deny any Illinois citizen an opportunity for a college education because of financial need; (4) to increase the number and diversity of citizens completing training and education programs; (5) to hold students to even higher expectations for learning and for the colleges and universities to be held accountable for the quality of academic programs and assessment of learning; and (6) to continually improve productivity, cost-effectiveness, and accountability.
