Whereas, The Educational Planning Initiative (EPI) has as its primary goal the development of a student services portal that will customize and sequence matriculation information and activities to lead students toward successful completion of their goals and an Education Planning and Degree Audit System to provide transcript, articulation, and curriculum inventory elements to colleges in order to help counselors reach more students;

Whereas, The student services portal and education planning and degree audit system serve as technology tools to assist colleges in achieving Student Success and Support Program components;

Whereas, The rise of guided pathways on the community college landscape has put the EPI’s signature accomplishments, including the CCC MyPath student services portal, front and center as the natural technology platform to develop a guided pathways infrastructure; and

Whereas, The Educational Planning Initiative is coming to the close of its initial grant, and questions have been raised regarding the role it will play in the future;

Resolved, That the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges endorse the Educational Planning Initiative’s suite of tools (CCC MyPath, Starfish, and other technology resources and supports) as a potential tool for colleges to use in order to design and implement institutional innovations related to guided pathways frameworks; and

Resolved, That the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges communicate our support for the Educational Planning Initiative’s suite of tools (CCC MyPath, Starfish, and other technology resources and supports) as a potential tool for colleges to use when discussing guided pathways frameworks to the California Community Colleges Chancellor’s Office.
