Proposed College of the Sequoias Center for Agriculture Science and Technology--A New Homestead. A Report to the Governor and Legislature in Response to a Request from the Board of Governors of the California Community Colleges. Commission Report.
California State Postsecondary Education Commission, Sacramento.
In this report, the California Postsecondary Education Commission finds that the proposal submitted by the Sequoias Community College District for the Center for Agriculture Science and Technology in Tulare County (California) has met the review criteria established for a new educational center and recommends that the State authorize it. The district has proposed to establish this off-campus educational center for the College of the Sequoias, located in Visalia, California. The center will replace the district's current farm laboratory facility and enhance its capacity to serve students in the southern portion of Tulare County. Contingent upon funding, the proposed center will open in 2005 and will serve an estimated 1,148 full-time equivalent students. It will provide comprehensive educational programs and enable the district to establish a new state-of-the-art home for its agriculture laboratory and associated academic programs. The proposed center will also relocate and consolidate current operational outreach efforts in the region. The recommendation of the Commission is made with the understanding that the district ensures that it will address the needs of its limited-English speaking students at the proposed center through outreach programs and curriculum designed to enhance participation and basic skills.
