Scaling Innovation for Community Colleges: A Guide to Action
Soricone, Lisa; McDonnell, Rachel Pleasants
Jobs For the Future
As community colleges across the country look for ways to promote student success, the need for scaling effective approaches is critical. This guide builds on a framework of four phases of scaling developed in Job For the Future's (JFF's) previous publication, "Thinking Big: A Framework for States on Scaling Up Community College Innovation": planning, initiating, expanding, and sustaining. With the aim of translating the framework to promote action on the ground, the guide outlines key concepts, questions, and action steps related to each of the four phases. The guide draws on lessons from multiple JFF initiatives designed to promote student success in postsecondary education, and offers examples of key concepts in action. [This guide was written with the assistance of Lara Couturier, Barbara Endel, and Jennifer Freeman. For "Thinking Big: A Framework for States on Scaling Up Community College Innovation," see ED561274.]
