Executive Summary of the 2000 External Environmental Scan and the Internal Environmental Scan Report Card: Key Issues for Planning.
This document summarizes both the 2000 External Environmental Scan and the 2000 Internal Environmental Scan Report Card for the Los Rios Community College District (LRCCD) (California). LRCCD consists of American River College (ARC), Consummes River College (CRC), and Sacramento City College (SCC). Report highlights include: (1) total headcount enrollment continues to increase in under-18 age groups; (2) 18-20 and 40+ are the fastest-growing age groups of students on LRCCD campuses; (3) enrollment of new high school graduates has increased from 6.5% to 9.3%; (4) a larger proportion of non-white high school graduates is attending the colleges, making up 47% of the total district population; (5) student success measures seem to be down from the previous year, including Grade Point Average (GPA) and persistence measures; and (6) environmental scan indicators show that, on average, new high school graduates who will enter LRCCD colleges in the years to come may be less academically prepared than earlier groups of students and less prepared than students nationwide.
