Provisional Community College Districts: A Proposed Method of Extending Community College Services to Unorganized Counties.
Arizona State Board of Directors for Community Colleges, Phoenix.
A county with insufficient population and/or assessed valuation to qualify for a community college district may establish a provisional community college district. This proposal, prepared by the State Board of Directors for Community Colleges of Arizona, intends to demonstrate how the provisional community college district is a logical and useful step in the progression to the establishment of a community college district. This step can occur when the population and assessed valuation of the county demonstrate that the county can support a college of high quality without disproportionate state aid. The proposal presents several criteria that should be met to insure genuine local control, while assuring the quality of community college programs and services and realistic funding mechanisms. The procedure for establishing a provisional community college district follows the same path as for the established community college district, except the population and assessed valuation criteria would not apply. Appendix 1 describes alternatives presently available to unorganized community college districts. Appendix 2 details the requirements to form a community college district. A listing of the current assessed valuation and population figures for the four unorganized counties is presented in Appendix 3. (JJL)
