ASSUMPTIONS

  • Reasons for student success vary.

  • Needs should be met before expectations can be fully realized.

  • If we don’t meet them, who will?

  • Instructors are an important part of process.

  • There is adequate time in and out of classroom to handle the process.

  • There are additional resources at COD to work with this SSK system.
