Two New Bills Will Save CCC Time And Money

"Two bills recently signed into law in California—AB 743 "Common Assessment" and AB 1056 "eTranscript California"—are expected to result in significant savings of time and money for more than 2.6 million students in the California Community Colleges system...
"Assembly Bill 743, authored by Marty Block (D-San Diego), requires the Chancellor’s Office to establish uniform assessment tests for English, math, and English as a second language (ESL)...

"Assembly Bill 1056, authored by Paul Fong (D-Mountain View), requires community colleges to convert from a paper-based transcript process to an electronic system called "etranscripts" that is highly efficient and student-friendly."

We need these kinds of common sense, scalable solutions for improving ICT education in California Community Colleges also.  Why have multiple departments at every CCC create different ICT related programs, credentials, assessments and labs, when common solutions could better serve all?  We have extraordinary duplications of effort producing different results all over the State.  Can we be smarter about how CCCs deliver ICT education?  Yes.
