Shasta College's Integrated Planning Manual - 2022 Edition describes the institution's integrated planning cycle. Initially developed in 2012 following District-wide dialogue, this new edition contains revisions made in 2013, 2014, 2017, and 2022 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.
