Pennsylvania Department of Education
With the enactment of Act 46 of 2005, the General Assembly changed the landscape of funding, auditing and reporting for the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania's fourteen community colleges. Act 46 also requires that the Department of Education produce an annual report reflecting data collected from the community colleges relevant to the immediately preceding school year. The Department is pleased to provide the first such report required by Act 46. This report highlights the most salient information called for in the legislation, including data on: faculty demographics and curricular areas; student enrollment in for-credit courses and by curricular areas; dual enrollment; distance learning; articulation agreements with higher education institutions; class size; retention and graduation rates; customized job training offerings and businesses and organizations served; remediation; and geographic representation of students.
