Commission Review of a Proposal by the Chaffey Community College District To Establish an Educational Center in the City of Chino. Commission Report 04-12
California Postsecondary Education Commission
In this report, the Commission considers the request by the Board of Governors of the California Community Colleges (BOG) and the Chaffey Community College District (CCCD) to establish an Educational Center in the City of Chino. The need for this educational center dates back to 1991 when the BOG adopted the community college system?s Long Range Capital Outlay Plan. Noting robust enrollment growth through 2010, the BOG calls for the establishment of two educational centers to serve the eastern and southwestern portions of the district. By 2000, the district?s available physical capacity significantly diminished as enrollment growth hit record levels. Enrollment demand was especially robust in the growing communities of Fontana and Chino Valley. The Commission concurs with the California Community College Board of Governors that an educational center should be established in Chino. The Commission specifically concludes that: (1) enrollments from the Chino Valley will almost triple over the next 12 years; (2) capacity at the existing outreach center in downtown Chino cannot accommodate the anticipated enrollment demand; and that (3) the proposed educational offerings address the area's educational needs.
