Accountability and Productivity in the Illinois Community College System Report.
Illinois Community Coll. Board, Springfield.
This report highlights and summarizes accountability activities and initiatives submitted by Illinois's 48 community colleges in their Accountability/Program Review Reports. This report has three primary sections: (1) Accountability Special Focus Area, which describes college priorities, performance-based incentives--district-based goal, and academic and student services--and availability and accessibility; (2) Analyses of the Results of Fiscal Year 2000 College Program Reviews, which examines programs in five academic disciplines, 37 occupational program areas, and in adult and developmental education and English as a Second Language; and (3) State-Level Initiatives, which discusses initiatives undertaken at the state level in support of the role community colleges in Illinois play in meeting local and statewide needs for education and workforce development through high quality, accessible, and cost-effective programs and services. This report provides evidence that Illinois's comprehensive community colleges play a vital role in the state's educational and workforce preparation; they provide access and opportunity to nearly one million diverse students annually. They are a valuable resource to businesses and industries and a partner in economic development in the districts they serve. Illustrates that the colleges are committed to continuous improvement of their programs and services and that they have strategic planning processes in place to address future needs. Appendices include community college program review tables. (VWC)
