Integrated Planning Cycle

Integrated Planning Manual

Shasta College's Integrated Planning Manual - 2014 Edition describes the institution's integrated planning cycle.  Initially developed in 2012 following District-wide dialogue, this new edition contains revisions made in 2013 and 2014 based upon input received from campus constituencies during the annual evaluation cycle. 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.  

Educational Master Plan 2012-2030

The Shasta-Tehama-Trinity Joint Community College District Educational Master Plan 2012- 2030 is grounded in an analysis of internal conditions, such as the current systems and pro-grams, as well as external influences, such as demographic trends and the communities’ educational interests and workforce needs. This document includes internal and external scan information, Institutional Goals, and the District’s broad plan for its educational programs and services.

Facilities Master Plan 2014-2030

The Facilities Master Plan supports the values and goals established by the Educational Master Plan.  It provides a framework for future development, including the placement of new facilities, the renovation of existing facilities, and the improvement of a number of District-wide sites.  It also provides guidance and support for future funding opportunities.

Strategic Plan 2015-2018

Learning Outcomes Handbook (Rev. 12/21/12)

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. It may include both quantitative and qualitative data in instruction or student services. A Learning Outcome is a statement about the knowledge, skills, attitudes and abilities a student is expected to have upon successful completion of an academic activity. The systematic assessment of Learning Outcomes benefits the entire college community.


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. The TracDat Resource Center offers a self-guided Canvas course to guide you through the process of preparing Annual Area Plans, Program Reviews, and Course SLOs.  Additional resource links provide direct login to the TracDat application and other help resources.  TracDat Resource Center

Data for Shasta College's Annual Area Plan initiative requests are contained in this document.  Completion of this step in the Integrated Planning Cycle represents the bridge between College-wide annual planning and resource allocation.
