Acceleration: Increasing Completion and Closing Equity Gaps – Shasta College (8/21/15)

08/21/2015 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm

Speakers:

Katie Hern, Co-Founder of the California Acceleration Project, along with English and math faculty from Northern CA colleges offering accelerated pathways

 

Description:

Join us for an interactive workshop on what your college can do to improve completion and equity among students placed into remediation.

 

Colleges offering redesigned accelerated pathways with CAP are seeing dramatic gains in student completion of transferable English and math courses, with all students benefiting and achievement gaps narrowing for Black and Hispanic students. Recent research has also pointed toward promising new approaches to placement. 

 

With $60 million of new state funds allocated to support community colleges to launch and scale up these innovations, there has never been a better time to join the acceleration movement. Come on in, the water’s fine!
