    Notice of Meeting

    On Thursday, June 23, 2011, the Little Hoover Commission will conduct a public hearing on California’s community college system. The hearing will begin at 9 a.m. in Room 437 of the State Capitol in Sacramento.

    In this study, the Commission is exploring how the California community college system as currently structured helps or hinders its ability to meet its mission and to explore whether another structure could result in better outcomes, improved efficiencies in employing scarce resources, and greater accountability for results.

    At this hearing, the Commission will evaluate the role of basic skills education in the state’s community college system. The Commission will hear an overview of California’s adult education programs from the vice chancellor of academic affairs in the California Community Colleges Chancellor’s Office and both the assistant superintendent and the administrator in charge of the Adult Education Office in the California Department of Education. The executive director of the Career Ladders Project will discuss best practices from a number of pilot programs in the community college system. The Commission also will hear about integrated basic skills programs in the San Diego and San Francisco community college districts. Finally, Commissioners will hear from members of a collaborative effort to coordinate basic skills English language programs between adult schools and community colleges in San Mateo and Santa Clara counties.

    There will be an opportunity for public comment at the end of the hearing. The Commission also encourages written comments.

    Immediately following the hearing, the Commission will hold a business meeting in the Legislative Counsel Conference Room located on the lower level of 925 L Street in Sacramento.
