This is a follow up to our recent CVHEC/CCA Corequsite at Scale Institute. The dates for the next phase, Central Valley California Accelerated Project (CAP) training, Community of Practice, will be held September 9-11, 2016. See attached application and information and forward to your academic leads that are working on CVHEC’s regional efforts reducing remediation in math and English. I have also sent this information to those faculty members who attended the initial March 4th Complete College America Institute, Corequisite at Scale Institute.
The Central Valley institute will be designed for colleges at earlier stages of implementation. The focus will include building support, developing curricular models,thinking about placement policies,and getting an introduction to CAP pedagogy. If a Central Valley college is ready to offer accelerated pathways in 2016-17, your campus is encouraged to apply to Community of Practice, either in the North or South, to get in-depth support.
Thanks to a brand-new grant from the Irvine Foundation, the fee is at a much lower cost than originally envisioned, just $300/participant.
PLEASE PROMOTE ATTENDANCE SO THE CV REGION CAN LAUNCH THIS COLLECTIVE WORK TOGETHER IN THE FALL 2016!
Lastly, to support this work, I brought on board this month an Analyst, supported by the College Futures Foundation grant, Dr. Daniel Griffin, who will be convening the Consortium Institutional Research folks to plan for tracking these efforts and building a reporting mechanism that feeds information to you all as CEOs, and also to, Complete College America, our national partner, advocate, and technical support provider.
Dr. Griffin formerly served as the Associate Director at the Fresno State Foundation and brings to CVHEC a wealth of experience in grant writing, grant reporting, and data collection/analysis.
