Being Student Ready
引导路径 is an equity-focused framework that allows colleges to forge clear paths for students 和 remove systemic obstacles to their success. This framework centers the student experience in system-wide decision making 和 works to meet the goals of the California 社区学院 Vision for Success (cccco.edu) 和 行动呼吁.
Dash to success is the visioning of the next phase of Guided Pathway efforts. 检查 出 冲向成功 page for an update on current efforts.
社区学院s are designed to facilitate access 和 tend to focus on providing a wide variety of individual courses rather than clearly structured programs. According to the state student success scorecard, only 43% of Butte College students attempting to achieve an outcome (graduation, certificate 和/or transfer) actually do within six years.This site shows that our attempt at 引导路径 is intended to provide structured pedagogy, processes 和 systems that support student connection, entry, progress 和 完成 of certificates 和 degrees, or support transfer to four-year institutions with junior st和ing in a major. These highly structured student experiences encourage 完成.
"A 引导路径 concept does not limit student choice. Instead, it provides opportunities to explore while supporting the likelihood of 完成," Robert White, Dean of Instruction Science, Technology, 工程、 & 数学 和 引导路径

What 引导路径 seeks to achieve.
推进股权: Removing barriers that today’s students face, particularly students of color, first-generation students, students from low-income backgrounds, 和 working adults.
Transform Institutions: A highly structured, comprehensive approach to systemic change to improve students’ attainment of skills, credentials, 和 socioeconomic mobility. It is founded on the principle that everything can 和 should change.
重新定义准备: Fundamentally shifting the conversation about what it means to put students first, encouraging colleges to focus on their readiness for students rather than students’ readiness for college.
设计支持: Recognizing that students need more than financial support 和 resources to be successful. It allows colleges to recognize 和 holistically support students’ academic 和 non-academic 需要.
Butte College Communities of Interest
The first phase of redesign focused on organizing colleges by student pathways 和 making pathways visible to students. That phase included organizing Butte College's academic programs into five Communities of Interest.
Communities of Interest (COI) represent a network of students with similar academic interests 和 career goals.
