Implementation Resources

In January 2012, the California Community Colleges Board of Governors endorsed the recommendations of the Student Success Task Force. Once implemented, the 22 recommendations contained in the plan will impact nearly every aspect of how the community colleges operate. Major recommendations address linkages with K-12 schools, student intake and support, instructional programs, and accountability. Taken as a whole, the Task Force recommendations provide a road map that will guide the system as we work to improve the way our colleges help students identify and achieve their educational goals.
