Task Force Mission In the Spring of 2012, the campus formed the Core of the Core Task Force to analyze programs and budget priorities. The task force was divided into four groups that reviewed PC’s transfer degrees, certificates, basic skills, and developed a new college operations proposal. Understanding the uncertainty of the state funding, the college reinstituted the Core of the Core Task Force in September 2012. This open forum will present the findings of the task force.
Institutional Planning The goal is to “see new ways” of providing academic and support services to students by looking beyond the current environment through a “new set of eyeglasses”. This will ensure that Porterville College continues to provide academic opportunities for students and prospective students. How can limited resources be reallocated to bring effective educational practices to scale? How can academic programs or courses be reorganized? How will the colleges ensure equity in educational outcomes?
