Florida Community College System Governance Survey. Data Trend.
Florida State Board of Community Colleges, Tallahassee.
The Florida Education Governance Reorganization Transition Task Force was established to recommend a structure as well as an accountability process for a seamless K-20 educational system for the state. In September 2000, the State Board of Community Colleges (SBCC) decided to survey its members, the presidents, and the local trustees of the 28 institutions within the Florida Community College System. The survey was an effort to determine what was working well in the current system, where problems existed, and where these individuals felt the various functions currently performed by the SBCC, the Division of Community Colleges, and local institutions should be housed. Seventy-eight useable responses were received. Some of the responses were the collective answers of the entire board of trustees at a given institution. No attempt was made to weight these responses differently than those of an individual. Findings of the survey include: (1) 95% felt it was very important or important to work collaboratively with colleges to prepare and coordinate implementation of the system's legislative goals; (2) 81% felt it was very important or important to plan, organize, and coordinate programs to enhance equal access and opportunity; and (3) 54% felt it was very important or important to administer the Florida Virtual Campus.
