25 p. 

Work to develop and test new statewide planning and evaluation procedures for the California community colleges is described in this paper, which provides background information, outlines the proposed comprehensive planning process, and discusses the use of statewide priorities. A background section describes current planning and evaluation activities and underscores the need for more comprehensive procedures. Proposed remedies to the problems created by top-to-bottom planning and widely dispersed and ill-defined evaluation responsibilities are then outlined, with focus on a joint project involving the Chancellor's Office and the Western Association Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges in the development of a method for sharing planning and evaluation as part of the institutional accreditation process; and on the work of the Chancellor's Office Task Force on Planning and Compliance. Next, a prospective planning and review process is presented, which encompasses programs and courses, facilities, extended opportunity programs and services, occupational education, handicapped student programs and services, affirmative action, calendars/schedules, innovative projects, student support services, and finances. Timetables for implementing the plan and accomplishing specific tasks are provided. Finally, plans to develop statewide priorities, guidelines for colleges in assessing their achievement of these priorities, and the value of such assessments and their relation to accreditation are explained.
