  14. Guiding Principles for Implementation • The technical content and workplace relevance of workforce and technical education should be strengthened continually to meet the needs of a changing economy. • Each region should build a more robust range of student support services, educational programs, and educational delivery strategies designed specifically to reach and support lower-income individuals. • Articulation between workforce, technical, two-year, and four-year credentialing should be seamless and transparent. • There needs to be a strong focus on performance, impact and outcomes that tie to each region’s recommendations. • Implementation of the recommendations should be carefully phased in within a two to five-year timeframe. • The LCTCS Board should consider a senior position responsible for sustaining and improving technical and occupational education across the technical and two-year college system.

  37. Recommendations BoR and BESE adopt a common purpose for the state’s dual enrollment programs - to provide eligible high school students access to college courses through dual enrollment programs at no cost to the student BoR and BESE develop a plan for the 2013-14 budget request to identify all available sources of funds to fully pay the student tuition and fees TOPS Tech Early Start continue to fund students enrolling in work skills courses with modifications to eligibility framework and payment amounts BoR coordinate with BESE to expand General Education Articulation Matrix to align with high school courses

  38. MOTION The Board of Regents approves and endorses the response to HCR 23 of the 2011 Regular Legislative Session, and authorizes the Commissioner of Higher Education to make whatever editorial and other non-substantive changes necessary prior to its transmittal to the appropriate House and Senate Committees.

  43. MOTION The Board of Regents approves and endorses the response to ACT 418 of the 2011 Regular Legislative Session, and authorizes the Commissioner of Higher Education to make whatever editorial and other non-substantive changes necessary prior to its transmittal to the appropriate House and Senate Committees.

  44. Agenda Item VII.E. Response to House Concurrent Resolutions 66 and Act 397 of the 2011 Regular Legislative Session

  45. HCR 77 & ACT 397 - Harrison To urge and request the Board of Regents, the Department of Revenue, and the Louisiana Workforce Commission to continue to work cooperatively relative to the reporting and sharing of certain information and data, including but not limited to information and data related to the success of Louisiana’s postsecondary graduates in the workforce…

  46. HCR 77 & ACT 397 - Harrison • The sharing or furnishing, in the discretion of the secretary, of a taxpayer’s reported postsecondary education and employment information to the Board of Regents for purposes of generating data related to the success of Louisiana’s postsecondary graduates in the workforce.

  47. Process • Enrollment and completer data were transmitted to LWC • LWC conducted a data match with its UI Wage file • The matched data was returned to BOR • The resulting data served as the basis for the 2011 BOR Employment Outcomes Report.

  48. Findings • With the passage of Act 397 and the subsequent amendment to the state statute on data sharing settled previous concerns regarding legal limitations. • BOR and LDR collaborated on how best to share data to develop a systematic records matching program that will allow Regents to assess policy decisions, program efficacy, and socioeconomic outcomes of postsecondary education, while assessing program and institution accountability.

  49. Next Steps Efforts would include: Identify the specific questions that need to be answered utilizing BOR and LDR data. Formulate a work plan to share data and seek to answer the questions. Format the pending pilot results into a presentation that can be easily understood and clearly targeted. Reconvene collaborating agencies to make an initial presentation of findings and solicit feedback. Refine, as necessary, data file specification and methodologies.

  50. Next Steps (cont’d) Continue on-going meetings between BOR and LDR data staffs to discuss results and determine appropriate, data analysis and whether an amendment to existing state tax forms would prove beneficial. Triangulate the matched LDR data with the LWC data match to provide a more robust picture of Louisiana graduates and their employment outcomes.
