Accountability

The Office of Institutional Effectiveness (IE) at Lake Tahoe Community College coordinates the process of identifying relevant measures of program and institutional performance, establishing baseline data, defining short and long-term goals, and reporting outcomes. This overall approach to maintaining accountability ensures that the College meets regional accreditation standards as well as state and federal regulations. Additionally, this promotes a culture of inquiry and thoughtful dialogue regarding the College's progress toward fulfilling its mission and vision.

In order to demonstrate outcomes relevant to the Strategic and Educational Master Plans of the College, an LTCC Scorecard was established. Additionally, this report includes the metrics from the CCCCO Student Success Scorecard, the IEPI Framework of Indicators, and ACCJC-required Institution Set Standards in order to present a more comprehensive review of the College's effectiveness.

  • LTCC Scorecard (to be updated upon completion of new Strategic Plan)

The Scorecard was developed in 2012 and is the current accountability framework for the California Community Colleges (CCC). The purpose of the Scorecard is to provide stakeholders with clear and concise information about student progress and success. The core of the framework is a series of college-level metrics. Several of the measures were carried over from the previous reporting system, the Accountability Reporting for the Community Colleges (ARCC), triggered by Assembly Bill 1417 in 2004. The ARCC framework represented a number of priorities, including using measures that reflect the breadth and scope of college missions and providing a standardized view of each college’s performance. These original principals have been carried over to the current accountability framework, the Scorecard.
