AB 2542: Accelerated Student Success College of 2010

HELD IN COMMITTEE

This legislation was designed to encourage student success at the California Community Colleges, through increased local flexibility with existing funding resources in exchange for increased student completion outcomes. This bill would establish a voluntary pilot program where in exchange for the flexibility of several specified regulations, these colleges would be funded not on the current basis of third week of the semester census, but rather on the number of students successfully completing the semester. As a further incentive, ASSC colleges would be allocated an additional $1,000 per student who completes an Associate Degree, Certificate, or becomes eligible for transfer above and beyond the college’ current completion rate.
