  5. 5. CA Success Network (CA SN) Logic Model California community colleges must expand their capacity to improve student outcomes in basic skills instruction, English as a Second Language, and related support services. Colleges report that 70-90% of entering students place into one or more basic skills course areas: reading, writing, and/or mathematics. The statewide course completion rate in basic skills is 60.5%, and only 50% of those students persist to and complete the next level course. Historically underrepresented students are over-represented in basic skills courses, and their success rates are frequently lower than the rates for other student groups. Community colleges' efforts to improve outcomes in basic skills cannot be separated from their responsibility to produce equitable graduation, certificate, and transfer rates for historically underrepresented and underprepared students.

  6. 6.  Funds for professional learning through the Network, above and beyond BSI funds  Sustained, ongoing support from a designated regional network coordinator  Participation in a summer leadership institute designed to support successful implementation of your BSI action plans
  7. 7.  Participation in a post-Leadership Institute project geared specifically toward the needs of your campus and basic skills program  Campus visits from the Leadership Institute Mentors, who will answer questions, provide support, and help with your post-Institute project
  8. 8.  Participation in regional workshops where you’ll get to discuss ideas, problems, solutions and where you’ll get to build camaraderie and community with colleagues from regional colleges  Participation in not only your own regional networks but in the larger network as well— where you can gain ideas, get insights, and work together to seek answers to thorny questions
  9. 9.  An opportunity to showcase successful programs/projects on your campus as well as field trips to other community colleges with model programs and practices  A robust and interactive virtual network to enhance professional learning and collaboration.  Partnerships with state-wide initiatives, such as the Faculty Inquiry Network, Center for Student Success, and Career Ladders
  10. 10.  Regional workshops put on by the ASCCC where faculty and administrators can gain additional information and insight  Data coaches to help with assessment and evaluation of your projects and who will also help guide you in making evidence-based decisions  A time to shine—an opportunity to showcase your college, such as your post-Leadership Institute project at the Strengthening Student Success Conference in October 2009 in San Francisco
