  13. 13. 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.
