In 2014, the California legislature established a system of indicators and goals to encourage California community colleges and districts to improve fiscal and operational effectiveness, while also reducing accreditation sanctions and audit findings.
Pursuant to Education Code section 84754.6, the Board of Governors (BOG) adopted the Year-Three goals framework at its November 14, 2016, 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
- programmatic compliance with state and federal guidelines
