A Brief History

The Ohlone College Basic Skills initiative started with informal dialogue organized by Dr. Jim Wright (Vice President of Academic Services) in 2005 during the program review discussions on Math and English. As the Academic Senate gained momentum and came up with the State Basic Skills initiative, Ohlone College was way ahead in the process of working on its basic skills program.

The Basic Skills Initiative Team, over the past 18 months, has been attending regional and local trainings conducted by the state academic senate throughout the state. These trainings led to the creation of the action plan needed to implement a basic skills program at Ohlone College.

Following the campus wide input session in the Spring of 2007, the action plan for the 2008-2009 (PDF) was put together by the team, which is already being implemented at various stages.
