Developing Alternative Placement Criteria for English Courses at City College of San Francisco. Issue Brief
Castrechini, Sebastian
John W. Gardner Center for Youth and Their Communities
Recognizing the need to improve postsecondary access and success for underrepresented populations, the San Francisco Unified School District (SFUSD), City College of San Francisco (CCSF), the City and County of San Francisco, and key community organizations formed the Bridge to Success initiative in 2009. The John W. Gardner Center for Youth and Their Communities at Stanford University has partnered with Bridge to Success to inform the initiative with data analysis. This issue brief highlights the process that Bridge to Success used in partnership with the Gardner Center to address the challenge of high rates of placement into remedial English courses at CCSF. The following are appended: (1) Regression results for models predicting passing first CCSF English course; and (2) New CCSF English course sequence (for internal use).
