Background: In 2014, the California legislature established a system of indicators and goals that is intended to encourage improvement in institutional effectiveness at California community colleges. Pursuant to Education Code section 84754.6, the Board of Governors (BOG) adopted the Year-Two goals framework at its November 16, 2015 meeting to measure the ongoing condition of a community college’s operational environment. This statute also requires that, as a condition of receipt of Student Success and Support Program funds, each college develop, adopt and post a goals framework that addresses, at a minimum, the following four areas: student performance and outcomes, accreditation status, fiscal viability, and programmatic compliance with state and federal guidelines. In accordance with statue, the Chancellor will also post system wide goals adopted by the BOG along with the locally developed and adopted college/district goals.
Rio Hondo College Board of Trustees Adopted Framework and Goals: At the June 8, 2016 RHC Board of Trustees meeting, the 2016-2017 Institutional Effectiveness Partnership Initiative Goals Framework was adopted along with the following goals.
- Student performance and outcomes: Successful Course Completion Rate – 68.5%
