Conversation About The Strategic Long Range Plan

Chair Birt: “Do you have any opening comments, President Breuder?”

Dr. Breuder: “No.”

Trustee McGuire asks about student success and what plans are in place or in process. The answer fell to VPAA Kartje who talks about QIP 15. VP Kartje discusses the plan to make the Math component statistically-based rather than Calculus-based because that is more useful to the majority of students.VP Kartje also discussed H.S prep in Math and the problems that this brings to our classrooms.

VP Earl Dowling discusses the Early Alert system and the improvements made to it, a video that will be shown to incoming students as part of an orientation and a special program for MAP students.

VPDowling fields more questions about the Early Alert system and its goals.
