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.
The Participatory Governance Manual serves as an overview of the participatory governance process at Shasta College and the linkage to the various campus committees.

The manual serves as a model to facilitate broad participation and communication by all members of the college community including students, faculty, staff and administration while demonstrating how various constituent groups and committees are interconnected.

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.

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
