Performance Reporting Plan.

This paper identifies the performance goals for Washington's community and technical colleges for 2000-2001. In the 1999 Budget Act, the State of Washington required that the State Board for Community and Technical Colleges "develop a biennial plan to achieve measurable and specific improvements each academic year as part of a continuing effort to make meaningful and substantial progress to achieve long-term performance goals." These goals include: (1) academic students must be prepared to transfer to baccalaureate institutions based on a minimum required grade point average, with a long-term target of 50,000 students per year; (2) basic skills students should demonstrate substantive skill gain as a result of their adult basic education (ABE) and English as a Second Language (ESL) instruction, with a long-term target of 80% demonstrating substantive skill gain; and (3) students will be prepared for work, with a long-term target of 25,000 per year. The system target goals for 2000-2001 are as follows: an increase of 2,660 transfer-ready students (from 35,290 to 37,950); a Basic Skills and ESL substantive skills gain of 41% (a 4% increase over the current 37%); and a 1,600 increase in the number of students prepared for work (from 14,544 to 16,150). The paper details ways in which colleges will be recognized for meeting performance goals. (NB)
