California Community Colleges Guided Pathways is a
multi-year program of the Chancellor’s Office designed to provide each college with the opportunity to implement Guided Pathways as an overarching framework for significantly improving student outcomes.
The State of California’s 2017–18 budget includes a one-time investment of $150 million to support the implementation of the Guided Pathways framework at all 114 California community colleges. The California Community Colleges Chancellor’s Office (CCCCO) is sponsoring one-day workshops to help colleges implement the Guided Pathways framework. This six-hour workshop will be offered in seven locations across California (see below) in September and October 2017, and will serve as a mandatory first step for any California community college interested in receiving a portion of these funds. Attendees will hear from early adopters about their experience implementing Guided Pathways; learn about the Guided Pathways framework, implementation timeline, and funding and reporting details; and be provided support to complete their Guided Pathways Self-Assessment Tool.
Schedule and Cost:
Registration is required through Eventbrite. Registration is at 8:00 am; the program runs from 9:00 am to 3:30 pm. The registration fee to attend is $75.
Who Should Attend?
Colleges wishing to participate in California Community Colleges Guided Pathways and be eligible for a share of the $150 million must send a team of 4–5 people (no more than 10) that includes CEO, CIO and middle-level instructional leaders, the Vice President of Student Services, Student Services deans/counselors, classified staff, and faculty senate and student representatives (e.g., Student Senate member). Each team should bring at least one laptop with them.
