Shasta College's Integrated Planning Manual 2012 describes the institution's integrated planning cycle, and was developed following district-wide dialogue. The integrated planning cycle is a comprehensive set of planning processes that are linked to one another so that there is an ongoing and systematic cycle of assessment, goals and objectives, program review, resource allocation, plan implementation, and re-assessment.
The 2013 Supplement to the Integrated Planning Manual incorporates changes made in response to a District-wide survey regarding our planning processes, as well as from input obtained at the Summer 2013 Management Group Retreat and College Council meetings. The supplement contains only those pages which have been changed, and are intended as replacements for those same pages in the 2012 Integrated Planning Manual.

The Shasta College Learning Outcomes Handbook provides a comprehensive overview of the learning assessment process where methods are used to generate and collect data for evaluation of courses and programs to improve educational quality and student learning.

The Annual Area Plan is one element of the Integrated Planning Cycle that ties the Initiatives from each area or program to the institutional goals and objectives, and that uses data (including assessments) to inform decision-making and resource allocation. In the Annual Area Plans, area effectiveness is assessed. Program Reviews are one component of the Annual Area Plans for specific instructional programs. This manual will guide you through the process of preparing Annual Area Plans and Program Reviews. Following is the TracDat login link: TracDat Login
