1. Guided Pathways Self-Assessment Workshops

The 2017-18 California State Budget has provided $150 million in one-time grants to seed the expansion of the Guided Pathways framework across the California Community Colleges over the next five years. These funds will complement and augment existing financial support provided by various statewide initiatives such as the Student Success and Support Programs (SSSP), Student Equity Planning, the Basic Skills Initiative, and the Strong Workforce Program. 

Participating colleges will integrate recent state investments and redesign academic pathways in ways that promote better course-taking decisions, minimize achievement gaps, and increase the number of students who earn a certificate or degree.

To apply for these funds, our first step as a college is to complete a college-wide self-assessment of the implementation and scale of evidence-based practices proven to close achievement gaps and increase completion of educational goals.

The Career and Transfer Pathways Committee will hold 3 workshops to engage a broad group of faculty, staff, students, and administrators in this self-evaluation. We ask that you attend only 1 of the 3 workshops to allow for the maximum number of people in the CCSF community to participate.

The Career Development Center in collaboration with the Child Development Department will be hosting an on-campus recruitment event on Wednesday, September 27 from 12:00pm-1:30pm on the first floor of the Multi-Use Building. Recruiters from Bright Horizons, Childcare Staffing, California Staffing Services, and the Center for Social Dynamics will be looking to hire CCSF students for Part-time and Full-time positions. Please see the attached event flyer and employer list with a description of roles.
 
Please share this event with your students and feel free to contact careercenter@ccsf.edu if you have any questions.


4. Take English and Math Placement Tests with Confidence! 

For all students who might need to refresh their English, math, or test-taking skills, we are offering Refresher Workshops at our Civic Center location this semester. Many students join us at CCSF after spending some time away from academia. Brushing up on placement test skills, math concepts, and grammar rules can help students place higher in English and math, and avoid unnecessary preparatory coursework. 

Please check out our Refresher Workshops. Feel free to share the attached flyer. And let your students, friends, and colleagues know that the Refresher workshops are available. Students need to sign up here: http://www.ccsf.edu/en/our-campuses/downtown/WADP/refresher-workshops.html
