SubjectAgreement for College and Career Access Pathways: A Dual Enrollment Partnership with Riverside Unified School District
Funding N/A
Recommended ActionRecommended that the Board of Trustees approve the College and Career Access Pathways Partnership Agreement

Background Narrative:

In accordance with details set forth under Assembly Bill 288, Riverside Community College District on behalf of Riverside City College in partnership with Riverside Unified School District (RUSD) is offering pathway-specific college and pre-college courses on Arlington, John W. North, Martin Luther King Jr., Ramona, and Riverside Polytechnic High School campuses. The term of this agreement is four (4) years beginning on July 1, 2018 and ending on December 31, 2021.

This agreement implements the elements of AB-288 College and Career Access Pathways (CCAP) Partnership Agreements with the goal of establishing seamless pathways to community college for Career and Technical Education or transfer; and improving high school graduation rates or college and career readiness. CCAP Partnerships allow community college districts to claim apportionment for closed courses offered on a high school campus to CCAP participants provided that all other applicable statutory and regulatory requirements are met.

This agreement augments the existing efforts between RCC/RCCD and RUSD enabling both institutions to progress toward strategic objectives of student access, equity, and completion (RCC) and college and career readiness (RUSD).
