Overview

DARE Taskforce Mission Statement

 

Developmental Education at De Anza College equitably allows
students of every background to take ownership of their education and to succeed in their educational goals by providing the necessary integrated resources, services, and learning environment.

 

DARE Taskforce Charge
 From Mini-Grants to Jumpstart for students...

 

The theme for this year so far has been “change” as the taskforce works to bring about a shift from a mini-grant funded model for addressing developmental educational needs, to a multi component, integrated, campus-wide initiative that really seeks to “move the needle” on student success for basic skills students.  This year we have engaged in an extensive process of inquiry and conversation for the purpose of identifying areas of need in basic skills that we would like to address with our campus-wide initiative. 

Through the inquiry process and through these conversations, we have decided on the initiative of “Jams.”- Lorrie Ranck, DARE Co-Chair. 2015-16

 

For more details on the process the committee engaged in 2015-16 to arrive at an “all-in” decision please visit Meeting Minutes.
