Whereas, The California Community Colleges System uses a common application tool known as CCCApply which serves all new students applying to the colleges;
Whereas, CCCApply has capability to indicate the high school(s) that prospective students have attended which facilitates data collection that is used in increasing student success statewide;
Whereas, AB 104 (2015, Committee on Budget) created the Adult Education Block Grant, which mandates alignment between California community colleges and adult education schools throughout the state, yet the two systems do not yet share a common data system which would facilitate tracking and data collection that could support student success; and
Whereas, Lack of such common data system results in the inability to track accurately the movement of students between adult education schools and California community colleges;
Resolved, That the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges work with the Chancellor’s Office to modify CCCApply to include the capability to indicate the specific adult education school(s) that a prospective student has attended; and work with the Chancellor’s Office to use this modification to improve the data collection of students transferring between the California community colleges and adult education schools.
