Education Master Plan Statement Review

This is the first time that there will be a Student Services presence in the Education Master Plan.
The committee read the proposed Master Plan statement and was asked to review it further
to amend or add additional content before the final submission.

iPad Project Updates


  • iPads will have forms and apps to make information more accessible to students.
  • The iPads will assist with the gathering of data, following up with students, and giving surveys. The data gathered will also be able to be imported instead of being manually entered.
  • The iPads will be used at the high school orientations as well. They will assist with the orientation itself; adding consistency, better communication, be more engaging, and enhance the orientation in general.

Student Development

  • EOPS will use iPads for student forms to help make the process paperless.
    • They will utilize tutorial materials such as the Kahn Academy iPad app.
    • Information will be more accessible to students and will enhance data collection.
  • DASB will use them for policies and procedures, information, and tutorials.


  • EDC will use iPads in tutoring sessions with students.
  • DSS will use them to assist students with DegreeWorks and MyPortal registration.
  • CAL will use one for demonstration purposes of accessible software.
  • HOPE will use them for daily living skills, on the job training, skill development, and for use
    in the computer lab.

Financial Aid

  • iPads will be used for workshops on financial literacy, FAFSA, and to assist with financial aid extensions and academic probation.


  • Developing a student success app to create an online virtual world to help connect students with their goals and to the services available to them.
    • The app will be interactive with texting, alerts, podcasts, etc.
    • The app will incorporate usage analytics to see what services are being
      utilized and what isn’t.
    • The app will include all of the student services departments.

Student Equity Funding Criteria Proposals

Student Development is looking into a summer math enrichment program for EOPS.

  • The program would be 1-2 weeks long and would concentrate on basic skills math.
  • It would include tutoring, mentorship, peer mentorship, assistance with math anxiety, etc.
  • They would like to create a pilot program with DARE.
  • Eventually they would also like to include one for the statistics class as well.

Program Review – Financial Aid (cont)

  • Working with Lourdes to get more data that is available to Financial Aid.
  • Scanners have been ordered to go paperless in the office and to make documents
    more accessible.
  • iPads have been ordered to assist with workshops and financial literacy for students.
  • Would like to hire a coordinator position and maybe a supervisor as well.
  • An ETS position would also be helpful, even if part-time or maybe shared with Foothill.
    • Someone who understands Financial Aid regulations to assist with programming.
  • Office reconfiguration to create a better ambiance, friendlier atmosphere.
  • Academic Works, the new scholarship program should be mentioned.
  • Automation of many services such as book vouchers and new workshops should be
    added as well.

This review and discussion will finish in the next meeting.
