Report on Local Investments of Partnership Funds: Investments for 2002-2003.
This report was created with the goal of showing how California Community College districts have been using their funds from the Partnership For Excellence during the 2002-03 fiscal year. The report is based upon the individual findings of 108 colleges which was gathered through an online survey that asked each district to report data on the Partnership activities being taken for each goal, the amount of money which were being allocated for each of the various activities, their object and activity codes as defined in the Chancellor's Office Budget and Accounting Manual, and the numbers of faculty and staff during the 2002-03 fiscal year. The survey has a single page summary for the expenditures of each district and other information organized by the five Partnership goal areas: Transfer, degrees and certificates, successful course completion, workforce preparation, and basic skills. The specific funds given to each goal area are as follows: 24% given to the transfer goal, 21.6% given to degrees and certificates, 23.6% given to successful course completion, 15.3% given to workforce development, and 16.6% given to the basic skills area. The report concludes with a warning that readers should be aware of adjustments and limitations when attempting to draw conclusions from the data presented. Contains two appendices. (MZ)
