- Student Report - not available
- Education Plan
Program Reviews should feed into the Education Plan. Education Planning Committee
has not been active for several years. The Master Plan has been the District's
driver but the prioritization of District needs is not firmly established
-by whom, when, and how evaluated.
Department and program chairpersons give prioritized lists to their Dean.
Deans gather, prioritize and forward to their VPs. VPs make final decisions
and submit to Business Services.
The short version of Program Reviews provides information which can be used
to make annual budget decisions and can easily be updated. The Program Review
Committee is requesting the Budget Committee to approve the model and forward
it to College Council. The Budget Committee will vote to approve/not approve
the model at its May 19, 2006 meeting in order to provide the Academic Senate
an opportunity to review and comment on the model. The Program Review Committee
would like Program Reviews to be required yearly.

- Student Learning Outcomes/First Completers
The President's office has made a commitment to give an incentive of $1,000
added to a program or department's budget for SLO reports submitted by the
end of this semester. Comments from instructors included how the questions
were not what they were expecting and they have been pleasantly surprised
and enriched. Seven reports have been received so far, and fourteen are in
progress. Other incentive ideas are welcomed.
SLOs are new; there is not yet a format available or a system developed for
reviewing, processing and retaining them. Many decisions still to be made.
There was a question on who validates completion of the SLO and what processes
are in place once that validation is done.
