  • Student Success Metrics

    To provide a holistic approach to the California community colleges’ work on student success, the Chancellor’s Office worked with a broadly representative group of practitioners to develop Student Success Metrics. Organized around common goals such as adult education/ESL, short-term career education, and degree/transfer, the metrics capture progression along students’ educational journey from recruitment to completion, transfer, and the workforce. Student Success Metrics pinpoint critical milestones and accomplishments that are foundational to the goals and outcomes for student access, success and support presented in Vision 2030.

The SCFF provides funding that supports access through enrollment-based funding, student equity by targeting funds to districts serving low-income students, and student success by providing districts with additional resources for student’s successful outcomes.
