Executive Summary of the 1999 External Environmental Scan and the Internal Environmental Scan Report Card: Key Issues for Planning.
This document is the second in a series of summary reports outlining Key Issues for Planning useful to staff throughout the Los Rios Community College District (CA) for the 1999-2000 academic year and beyond. The 1999 Environmental Scan of Greater Sacramento provides a comprehensive look at the external environment. It outlines changes in the Greater Sacramento Consolidated Metropolitan Statistical Area that have broad implications for planning by the district and its colleges. The 1999 Environmental Scan Report Card provides a comprehensive internal review of the District's effectiveness in serving students. This document provides information about the economy of the Greater Sacramento area; population shifts; student enrollment patterns; student success including grades, completion rates, and transfer rates; and graduate employment. Improving recruitment efforts is particularly important in light of the fact that the 1998 graduate numbers increased by 7.4% over 1997, but Los Rios colleges only saw an increase of 4.1% in the number enrolling in 1998-99 over the 1997-98 academic year level. Comparative analysis in this report card provides information about which student groups have stronger and weaker performance so that Partnership for Excellence dollars can be most efficiently and effectively utilized to improve student success.
