Background on SEA: In Fall 2018, the Basic Skills Committee and the Student Equity Workgroup joined forces to create the Student Equity and Achievement (SEA) group. The purpose of the SEA group is to coordinate campus efforts to improve student success, especially for student groups experiencing less success than other student groups, and to close equity gaps.
In Spring 2019, the SEA group will examine student data to understand where equity gaps exist, then recommend activities and programs to address these gaps to create a new three year student equity plan. This student equity plan is due June 30, 2019 to the Chancellor's Office. According to CA Ed. Code, "In order to ensure equal educational opportunities and to promote student success for all students, regardless of race, gender, age, disability, or economic circumstances, the governing board of each community college district shall maintain a student equity plan."
