Many California Community Colleges are seeking guidance on how to implement new approaches designed to increase institutional effectiveness. To support these efforts, the California Community Colleges Chancellor’s Office (CCCCO), the Institutional Effectiveness Partnership Initiative, and the RP Group are teaming up to create a series of Applied Solution Kits (ASKs) on key approaches. Current topics include Integrated Planning, Data Disaggregation, and Strategic Enrollment Management, with new ASKs to be added as additional topic areas are developed.
Integrated Planning ASK Summary
Developing, implementing, and sustaining an effective integrated planning process is essential for institutional effectiveness and a critical element in the accreditation process. The Integrated Planning (IP) Applied Solutions Kit (ASK) provides a variety of tools, resources, and examples that can help to strengthen planning.
This ASK includes a specific integrated planning model that includes five components — Discover, Develop, Implement, Evaluate, and Report. Each component of the IP Model has associated resources and examples that users can adapt for use at their campus. The tools and resources in this ASK are evolving.
The RP Group's Work
The RP Group's role in this project has been to align the IP ASK with other current ASKs as well as CCCCO initiatives, create new and improved existing IP tools, develop a rubric to evaluate IP tools and best practices, and work with California Community Colleges to elevate their IP practices. We also are helping to align various IP accreditation standards including those under the ACCJC and WASC.
All ASKs are hosted on the Professional Learning Network. Go here to view the Integrated Planning ASK.
