Future Development Strategy

Strategy 1

Increase Student Accountability

Initiatives
  • Focusing on student success
  • Valuing a culture of learning

  • Supporting Rationale
    The EOPS Office is piloting a new probationary program during spring 2013.  Student and staff feedback will guide the process for 2013-14.  Students whose fall 2012 GPA was less than 2.0 are required to attend a probation workshop conducted by EOPS Counselors.  The workshop includes information on new Title V requirements as well as changes to federal student aid regulations that impact eligibility.  During the students first meeting with their EOPS Counselor, they will be asked to resign their EOPS Mutual Responsibility Contract to reconfirm that they understand the program requirements.  Students who choose not to attend the probation workshop will be exited from the program.

    Supporting Rationale Alignment
  • Increasing student success
  • Strategy 2

    Impliment Services for AB540 Students

    Initiatives
  • Inspiring passion through collaboration
  • Focusing on student success
  • Valuing a culture of learning

  • Supporting Rationale
    Effective spring 2013, state law allows EOPS to serve AB540 students.  We will establish inner office protocols and work with other campus departments to develope an informational flier for AB540 students.  We will also explore the possiblity of creating a place on the Butte College web site that explains all of the services and programs for AB540 students. 

    Supporting Rationale Alignment
  • Increasing student success
  • Strategy 3

    Establish EOPS as the 'home office' for the Butte College Foster Youth Success Initiative

    Initiatives
  • Inspiring passion through collaboration
  • Focusing on student success
  • Valuing a culture of learning

  • Supporting Rationale
    In 2007, the CCCCO established the Foster Youth Success Initiative.  Although Butte College has been very responsive to the call to action by the CCCCO, we have not identified a department to house the effort.  EOPS staff feel that this population of students fits with our mission and goals.

    Supporting Rationale Alignment
  • Increasing student success
  • Required Resources

    Replace Director's PC.

    Purchase a second (dual) monitor for office Supervisor.

    Current Revenue Stream

     

    Title V regulations require that each college district contribute a specified minimum to the EOPS program.  Our current district requirement is $131,088.  We have not been informed by the CCCCO as to whether or not this amount will increase for 2013-14.

    Currently, a portion of the District Contribution  ($26,247) is met with Perkins/VTEA funding.  In the event new federal guidelines prevent Perkins funding from being used in this manner, the District will be required to increase their contribution from the general fund.

     

    EOPS       $ 876,253

    CARE       $  229,058

    District     $  126,315

    Perkins    $    26,575

    Total       $1,258,201

    *As defined by the CCCCO, $127,813 of our state allocation must be used to meet the required book support component of the program.
