What is the Basic Skills Initiative and the Basic Skills and Student Outcomes Transformation Grant?
The Basic Skills Initiative and the Basic Skills and Student Outcomes Transformation Grant are state-funded programs that seek to improve readiness of students for college-level material. They do this by systematically improving reading, writing, and math skills for students who enter into college unprepared. In addition, both Basic Skills Initiative and the Transformation Grant work to improve outcomes for English Language Learners.
What is the Student Success and Support Program?
The goal of the state-funded Student Success and Support Program is to improve California community college student access and success by providing effective core services to entering students as they transition into college, in order to provide a solid foundation for student achievement and success in meeting their educational goals. These core services include orientation, assessment and placement, counseling, educational planning services, and other initial and follow-up academic interventions for students who may need additional support. By providing a comprehensive and integrated program of services to credit and non-credit students, Santa Ana College assists students to more quickly define their educational and career goals, persist in their studies, and achieve their goals in a timely manner.
