  1. Student Success and Support Professional Development Day Fall 2014 R. Brown, V. Martinez, K. Moberg, A. Ratto

  2. Student Success and Support Programs:What Is It and Where Are We? Focuses on changes in: • Enrollment Priorities • Matriculation Requirements • Funding • Accountability • Student Success/Achievement

  3. Overview of SSSP • Passed by the legislature to change matriculation requirements and increase accountability • Focuses on new students • Focuses on students seeking degrees, transfer or Career Technical education • Focuses on Basic Skills • Does not focus on single-course takers, life-long learners or transfer students

  4. Overview (cont) • Requires collaboration between Student Services areas • Requires alignment with high schools • Requires pathways to success • Includes Equity component • Impacts funding of services • Requires greater coordination between Student Services and Instruction

  5. Enrollment Priorities • Awards and incentivizes completion of: • Assessment • Orientation • An abbreviated Ed Plan • Encourages declaring a major • A declared goal of transfer, degree or certificate • New students – effective fall 2014 – including DRC, EOPS, CalWORKs, Foster Youth and Veterans must complete items 1 through 5

  6. Assessment • All “New-to-College” students should be assessed • State-wide “Common Assessment” being developed • Encourages alignment with high schools regarding expectations, curriculum and placement levels • Encourages multiple measures • Examples: high school grades, standardized tests, other models available

  7. Orientation • SSSP Requires All New Students to Complete Orientation. • Typical Fall Incoming Class of 1000 Students • Piloted Kick Start Program Spring/Summer • In-person and Online • Offered a Variety of Course and Program-specific Orientations

  8. Educational Plans Follow-Up • At Risk (Basic Skills, Underrepresented, etc) Students • Challenges: • What new interventions will need to be developed based on data? • How do we scale up to meet demand and the funding regulations? • All New Students Will Need: • A 1 to 2 semester (abbreviated) Ed Plan • A comprehensive Ed Plan • Students who change their majors should get new Ed Plans, but this is counted as follow-up for funding.

  9. Funding Old Matriculation funding was in lump sum. New SSSP funding is based on service-delivery: • 10% Initial Orientation • 10% Assessment • 10% Abbreviated Ed Plan • 15% Counseling • 35% Comprehensive Ed Plan • 15% At Risk Follow Up Services • 5% Other Follow Up Services • 2:1 Match by the College

  10. Accountability and Achievement Measures • State wants to see more results – increased transfer, degree, certificate awards • State wants to see how we are actually working toward student achievement • State wants students to be more self-directed and focused on outcomes • Scorecard for all colleges: http://scorecard.cccco.edu/scorecardrates.aspx?CollegeID=441

  11. Gavilan College Process for SSSP Plan • SSSP Committee formed March 2014 (3 Admin, 5 Managers, 1 Professional Support Staff, 1 Confidential and 1 Faculty). • Writing assignments made in April • Majority of plan written by Counseling faculty • Committee reviewed draft and edited based on member input. • Committee identified items requiring larger discussions. • Collaborated with Equity Committee to identify linkages with Equity Plan.

  12. Next Steps • Present and revise SSSP Plan through Shared Governance process. (Currently posted on the intranet.) (comments required by September 15th, 2014) • Present for approval to Board of Trustees. • Submit to CCCCO by October 15, 2014. • In 14/15, the Student Services Council will create a task force to review results of the orientation pilots, create student focus groups, and bring suggestions to the SSSP committee for revisions to next year’s report. • Questions/comments, or if you would like to be more involved contact: VMartinez@gavilan.edu or KMoberg@gavilan.edu

  13. Student Equity Plan As a part of the SSSP, the college is required by CCCCO to review data and identify any inequities across student population groups. Develop a plan to address disproportionate impact on access and achievement. Provided an opportunity for us to really examine how different groups are doing and develop a funded plan to respond.

  14. Student Equity Success Indicators The Chancellor's office prescribed a method for collecting and analyzing data on the following indicators: • Access (does our enrollment population reflect the community?) • Completion (course success) • Basic Skills improvement-English, Math, ESL • Degree and certificate completion • Transfer

  15. Assess Equity By: • Gender • Ethnicity • Age • Disability Status • Economically Disadvantaged • Foster Youth and Veterans Added (7/14)

  16. Gavilan College Process for Student Equity Plan • Student Equity Committee formed February 2014 (2 Admin, 2 Managers, 2 Staff, 3 Faculty, and 4 Students). • The Office of Institutional Research conducted the prescribed research and summarized the findings. • The Committee reviewed the research and discussed methods to address inequities. • In response, the committee developed a plan which included goals, outcomes and activities. • The Committee reviewed several drafts and edited based on Committee member input. • Collaborated with the SSSP Committee to incorporate proposed activities.

  17. Areas of Inequities at Gavilan • Low-income and Foster Youth student course completion rate (success rate). • Hispanic-American students, students with disabilities, and older students transfer rates. • All other groups/areas did not meet the CCCCO threshold for inequity.

  18. Some Proposed Interventions • To increase low income and Foster Youth student completion rates some of the proposed activities include: the TRIO Math boot camp, faculty training on poverty, and expansion of Foster Youth services for part-time students.  • To increase Hispanic-American, disability, and older student transfer rates, some of the proposed activities include: re-establishing a Career/Transfer center with university rep on campus, and expanding information and visitations to universities. • Additionally, increasing orientation, education plans, and follow up services and reducing the number of impacted courses.

  19. Next Steps for Student Equity Plan • Present and revise Equity Plan through Shared Governance process. (Currently posted on the intranet). • Present for approval to Board of Trustees. • Submit to CCCCO by November 21st 2014. • In 14/15, the Student Equity committee will meet regularly to provide updates on progress made toward addressing inequities. • The committee will also meet to develop next year’s plan. • Questions and comments or if you would like to be more involved contact:ARatto@gavilan.eduor RBrown@gavilan.edu
