California Community Colleges Local Vision Goals

In 2019, each of California’s 114 community colleges were required to establish and submit “Local Vision Goals” (or “Local Goals”) as part of the Student Centered Funding Formula (SCFF) implementation. Now that each of the colleges have submitted their plans, it is important that advocates know how to access and review their college’s Local Vision Goals. Ed Trust–West encourages advocates to attempt to locate and review their college’s Local Goals, and evaluate the goals using four principles: Accessibility & Transperency, Racial Equity, Stakeholder Engagement, and Accountability. If you cannot locate your college’s local goals online, see below for a link to Local Goal documents we were able to find.
