|What is the Basic Skills Initiative (BSI)?
The BSI is a collaboration among the statewide Academic Senate, the State Chancellor's Office, the leadership of various community college chief officers' associations, and the RP Group's Center for Student Success. The Initiative is designed to improve student success by focusing on effective practices in basic skills, both within the programs and services that directly address developmental education and across the entire college curriculum that serves students with diverse academic preparation and skills.
How Do I Get Involved?
During the Fall 2008 semester, the Implementation Plan for the Basic Skills Initiative will be reviewed through CCSF's shared governance processes. As individual elements of the plan are approved by appropriate shared governance processes, individual projects articulated in the implementation plan will be started. Calls for participation in projects will be publicized through the various college-wide communication tools (City Currents, emails, etc.). Updates will be periodically posted on this website.
The Basic Skills Subcommittee will be working with the shared governance processes and periodic reports on the progress will be incorporated into that committee's agendas. Specific questions can be addressed to Mary Bravewoman, Basic Skills Subcommittee Co-chair or Bruce Smith, Dean of Liberal Arts. For information about specific consideration in the shared governance process, please consult with the chair of the appropriate committees.
